MR. A. C. FOX-DA VIES 

EXPERT IN PEDIGREES AND HERALDRY 

Mr. Arthur Charles Fox-Davies, genealogist, barrister, and author, died on Saturday 
at the age of 57 at his home in Warwick-gardens, W., where he had been lying ill for 
some weeks. He will be chiefly remembered for his work in the genealogical field. In 
this he took his keenest pleasure. It was for him not merely a labour of love, but an 
exciting form of sport, to hunt down and kill some picturesque dragon of genealogical 
imposture, to overthrow some cherished idol of family pride based on nothing more 
substantial than the vain imaginings of a recent ancestor or the artful tale of some 
flatterer possessed of a smattering of heraldry. 

Other scholars had laboured in the same field before Fox-Davies came, but it was he 
who took the campaign against armorial pretence out of the austere pages of learned 
publications and brought it to the notice of the pubhc at large. Many will remember, for 
example, the fluttering of the dovecotes which followed his refusal to accept as armigerous 
a host of worthy folk who had uncritically accepted as genuine the blazons arbitrarily 
adopted by their sires or grandsires and wished to be recorded in his " Armorial Families." 
His cheerful iconoclasm of Wardour-street " family traditions," his polite offer of an 
entry in italics or careful explanation of the defects in an unproved pedigree induced 
numbers of families which had erred in sheer ignorance or noncurance to put their heraldic 
houses in order. His labours thus helped to provide a field in which the talents of herald- 
painters, armorial craftsmen, and designers of bookplates could be exercised, and greatly 
helped to forward that heraldic revival, started by others, which has borne rich fruit in 
the restored splendour of public ceremonies and the resuscitation of the almost forgotten 
celebrations of the festivals of the Orders of the Garter, the Thistle, and the Bath and 
the institution of others. 

Besides practising his heraldry, Fox-Davies also presented it in several interesting 
works, among them " The Complete Guide to Heraldry " and " Heraldic Badges." In 
the " Book of PubHc Arms " he recorded many of the results of his campaign for getting 
genuine grants for pubhc as well as private arms substituted to the constituted armorial 
authorities of the three kingdoms for the unauthorized assumptions at one time so 
prevalent. In the " Art of Heraldry," for which he secured the collaboration of many 



vi a^t» a. C. jTor=Dat)ie0 

experts, he showed how admirably heraldic forms and devices were adapted for almost every 
conceivable variety of decoration, and as editor of the 1914 edition of Burke's " Landed 
Gentry " he was able to provide decent interment for a multitude of cherished family 
fictions, and to confine armorial and genealogical imaginings within the sober bounds of 
what could reasonably be proved. 

As a barrister Fox-Davies appeared in several important peerage cases, but 
occasionally took a holiday from his hobby by accepting an ordinary brief, or contesting, 
in the Conservative interest, a quite hopeless seat at an election. He sought further 
relaxation by serving on the Holborn Borough Council and by writing " thrillers," in 
which he obtained admirable results by juggling with ingenious points of law, and so 
carefully described the criminal activities of a likeable baronet who sought a justifiable 
revenge that a burglar stole the proofs of the book before publication in hopes of 
improving the technique of his own iniquities. During the War, Fox-Davies served 
at first in the Anti-Aircraft Corps and afterwards in the Naval Law Branch at the 
Admiralty, where he had to deal with the remarkable collection of juristic improbabilities 
and international tangles which came from the Aegean and other parts of the 
Mediterranean. 

Mr. Fox-Davies was the second son of Mr. T. E. Fox-Davies, of Coalbrookdale, 
Shropshire, and was bom at Bristol on February 28, 1871. He married, in 1901, Mary, 
daughter of Captain S. W. Crookes, of The Wyke, Shifnal, and had a son and a daughter.

PREFACE TO THE SEVENTH EDITION 



BEFORE referring to the most important of the changes in the last and present 
editions, it may be as well to refer to several minor points as to which 
I often receive inquiries. 

First, as to the " catch-line " names which appear in the book. In 
the first edition the first entry for each surname was so distinguished for 
mere purposes of ready reference, or perhaps even — for it was not my own idea^by the 
desire of the printers to make an " artistic " page. Their efforts and labour to that 
end have been unceasing, beyond even my own desires. But even before the completion 
of the first edition the fatal objection had become apparent that the insertion of an entry 
for the same surname but with a christian name earlier in the alphabet involved the 
displacement of the catch-line from the one paragraph to the other, and the resetting 
of both. The catch-hnes were therefore abandoned ; but I did not consider their 
importance, in or out, was worth the cost of resetting in order to provide for their 
deletion. Consequently those which were then standing in the type were allowed to 
remain until such times as other alterations necessitated a disturbance in the type of 
the particular entries containing them. As such opportunities arise they are deleted, 
and each new edition has seen their number largely reduced. They are thus 
automatically disappearing, very few now remain, and doubtless ere long all will 
have vanished. 

For the last editions a new form of entry was adopted. One seldom at the very 
beginning of a project hits off the precise plan which the experience of years in carrying 
out that enterprise eventually indicates as the most advantageous. There were two 
considerations always before me. The chief was the eternal hterary difficulty of " space." 
M}^ book was growing, growing, and some drastic change was necessary. My original idea 
(based upon the inclusion of impalements) had been a separate entry for each separate 
person. That involved a repetition of parentage (a matter of four or five lines) in the cases 
of brothers, and a repetition of the details of the arms — sometimes running to a column or 
more. But this repetition became practically purposeless, because I found in practice that 
only a very small proportion of the entries carried impalements. Many a man is keenly 
anxious to estabhsh his own right to arms, who feels that it is not his business, but the 
business of the male members of his wife's family to prove the right to arms on that 
side. Consequently a new system was adopted in the sixth edition by which all bearing 
the same coat of arms were grouped together under that coat, and all brothers grouped 
together under the names of their parents. I have not thought it worth while to reset 
the book at a cost of many hundreds of pounds, merely to obtain a fixed uniformity of 
arrangement, where no change is made in the information afforded between one type of 
entry comprising several people and a number of separate entries. On this, point as 
in the matter of catch-Unes, I have taken, as I propose to take in the future, every 
opportunity, as alterations or changes occur necessitating the disturbance of type in an 



IX 



X preface to tfte ^etientb (JBDition 

entry, to convert the book to the form now adopted. The other consideration was a 
printing technicahty. Certain parts of an entry — the arms and the Hvery — are permanent, 
needing no change generation after generation. Other parts are constantly altering, 
and by putting the permanent portion first it becames less costly to make alterations. 

Whilst the new form has been adopted in all new entries which now appear in the 
work for the first time, the reverse is not the case. In all entries in which alterations of 
any moment occurred the opportunity was taken to adopt the new form, and the 
deduction to be drawn from the appearance of an entry in either form is no greater than 
from the insertion or absence of the black-letter catch-lines. 

But I find some people do not understand the new method of arrangement, though 
it is the one which has been adopted in Debrett's " Peerage." No attempt is made 
to give pedigrees, no attempt is made to include deceased members of a family. Those 
members of a family entitled to bear arms and now alive, are arranged in strict order of 
their seniority in the order in which they would succeed to a hereditary title, and their 
names are followed by the usual details of their birth, marriage, issue, &c. Where 
successive entries are for brothers, they are grouped under one heading of their common 
parentage, but the words in the heading " Sons of " does not mean that those who follow 
are a complete list of the sons of the person named (for some may have died), but that 
those whose names follow are sons of the specified person. 

The coloured illustrations speak for themselves, and I can only hope the insertion 
of these illustrations will prove the attraction I anticipate. 

T?ie dating of the arms has turned out a matter of great difficulty — much greater 
than I had anticipated. In the first place, few seem to know or care about the date of 
their arms. It is easy enough to check the truth of a given statement of claim ; except 
in the grant of a modern coat it is almost impossible to ascertain the date save by research 
and the expenditure of time wholly prohibitive to the attempt. Where a reasonable 
claim has been made I have attempted to verify it, and with few exceptions all such coats- 
of-arms are dated. But the claims made have been much fewer than I anticipated. The 
dates which are inserted are [a) those of the dates which I have been asked to insert, which 
I beheve to be correct, {b) dates which have been within my knowledge before they were 
supphed to me by the owners of the arms. The date of a grant of arms is public property 
to anybody who cares to pay the fees for a search, but where I have not known it, and to 
assist me in my editorial work, my correspondents have been good enough to tell me what 
the date of the grant is and have expressed a wish that the date should not be published, 
I have respected that wish and treated the information as supphed to me in confidence. 
The dates — where the arms are dated — are those of official authorisation. In a few cases 
where the arms are found on the early rolls it is possible to take an old coat back approx- 
imately to its date of origin, but in the bulk of ancient English cases one can do no more 
than refer to the Visitations, which, though the earhest date of authorisation, may or 
may not be the date of origin. 

In Scottish cases, with rare exceptions, the earliest quotable date of authorisation is 
1672, the date of the commencement of the present Lyon Register. 

So that, except where a definite date of grant is quoted, the date of authorisation 
is not necessarily the date of origin. In the case of arm.<= authorised but not specifically 



Preface to tiie ^etientti dBDition xi 

granted anterior to 1700 the dates are of but little value for comparative purposes. But 
these coats form but a small proportion of the arms in use. 

I am very anxious to get a larger proportion of the arms dated than I have been able 
to up to the present, and I do appeal to those whose names appear in the book to supply me 
with the real dates at which their arms were granted or officially confirmed. It may save 
trouble if I say at once that William the Conqueror did not make any grants of arms. 
Those who can only lay claim to modern grants of arms are, I find, often unwilling that 
the date of grant should be pubhshed. Frankly, I am quite unable to understand why 
there should be more reluctance in admitting the date of a grant of arms than the date of 
a Baronetcy. 

The omission of the italic entries which appeared in the first four editions of this 
book may or may not be an improvement. Many correspondents have written to 
me on the point, some advocating insertion, some omission, but the imperative necessity 
of reducing the space was the factor which finally decided the point. At first, I could 
not claim for " Armorial Families " any approach to completeness, but as each successive 
edition has brought more and more families under review the approximation to complete- 
ness has lessened the necessity for the retention of the italicised part, and lessened it to 
an increasing extent. But even yet I do not claim to have reached the end, though I 
think I am now justified in thinking my book is approximately a complete directory of those 
who are proved to be officialh' entitled to bear arms. I have sent out right and left for the 
last twenty-five years, hundreds of thousands of information forms asking that they 
should be filled up and returned to me. Whenever a form has been returned to me from 
which on the face of it it seemed possible that the arms claimed were borne by right, 
I have taken steps to ascertain if the claim were good, and whenever this has been the case 
such arms have been inserted without charge or stipulation. I have gradually worked 
through such books as Burke's " Landed Gentry," and each edition has left a diminishing 
remnant. Shortly before I closed up the last edition for the press I wrote to the head of 
every remaining family in the " Landed Gentry " pointing out what I was doing, saying I 
was aware of no modern proof of the right to the arms which were attributed to him in 
that work, and asking that I might be advised if I were wrong. The result of my letters 
astonished me. A very large number at once informed me of their right under a compara- 
tively modem grant or record, not to the ancient arms attributed to them, but to some 
entirely distinct coat 1 

But to conclude my remarks on this point, I do say that there are few families 
entitled to arms, whose right has been proved in sufficiently modern times to place it 
beyond reasonable doubt, that are now omitted. That there must be some I am of 
course aware, some even whose right is duly registered up to themselves in the College of 
Arms. The College of Arms will not permit an}- one access to their records nor give the 
shghtest clue as to the pedigrees which are recorded from time to time or the grants which 
are made. One can, however, inquire whether a pedigree has been recorded to a given coat- 
of-arms, or whether a specified person has recorded a right to arms by grant or proof of 
pedigree, and by paying the ordinary search fees can receive the desired information. 
This I do in all cases coming under my notice. 

Obviously I cannot work through the London or any other Directory at the price 
of the Heralds' College search fees for each inquiry : but, given a coat-of-arms which looks 



xii Preface to tiie ^cDcntt) OBDition 

genuine, I can find and do find out to whom it belongs. I have many friends and corres- 
pondents for whose help in this way I am under deep obligations, and sooner or later 
most genuine coats-of-arms eventually come into my hands — my difficulty being that I 
am held up to criticism for the omission of arms recently proved or lately granted bsfore 
they have filtered through into mj" knowledge. 

Subject to this qualification, and with the exception of the arms of some Peers 
and Baronets, I believe the present edition of " Armorial Families " may be fairly 
described as approximately complete. 

Peers and Baronets were included in the first and second editions of " Armorial 
Families." They were then omitted solely for the reasons of space. A few Peers and 
Baronets, however, appear in the body of the book. Some remain under the undertaking 
I gave in my first prospectus to retain in perpetuity the arms of every subscriber. The 
rest have been inserted from time to time for various reasons, chiefly technical, which 
it is not necessary to explain. Suffice it to sa}^ that nearl}^ every Peer and nearly 
every Baronet has genuine arms. 

I am very anxious to add the details of the quarterings to which different families 
are entitled where these are recorded, but I do not undertake, or intend to investigate 
gratuitously for the purpose of this book, claims which have not been registered. There 
are, however, many families who possess officially certified paintings of their arms and 
quarterings, or official pedigrees, and I should be indebted for the opportunity of 
examining such documents. I am always glad to learn of any grant of arms which has 
been made, or any pedigree which has been formally recorded. 

With regard to Cockades, it seems to me that such official authority, or quasi-authority, 
as they formerly had lapsed at the death of Queen Victoria, and until they are revived 
by some overt act on the part of His Majesty, they appear to me to have now become 
meaningless, and for that reason I am omitting them from the book as opportunity in 
the alteration of entries occurs. 

In both Lyon Court and Ulster's Office I have been greatly helped in the compilation 
of my book, and my sincerest thanks are due to Sir James Balfour Paul, K.C.V.O., the 
former, and Mr. F. J. Grant, the present Lyon King of Arms, and to Major Sir Nevile 
Wilkinson, K.C.V.O., Ulster King of Arms, and Mr. T. U. Sadleir, Registrar of Ulster's 
Office, for all the encouragement and assistance I have constantly received at their hands. 
In the College of Arms, I have also to offer my grateful thanks to Sir Henry Farnham 
Burke, K.C.V.O., C.B., Garter King of Arms, and the other Officers of Arms, for much 
help in the revision of my book. 

I should also hke to thank Mr. Charles A. H. Franklin, M.D., B.S., F.S.A.Scot., for 
much kind assistance.

THE ABUSE OF ARMS 

Sl^RELY even those who affect the greatest contempt for Heraldry will admit that if 
Arms are to be borne at all, it should be according to the laws of Arms ; and that, if 
the display of them be an empty vanity, it is a less creditable vanity to parade as 
our own those which belong of right to others. 
Heraldry has been contemptuously termed "the science of fools with long memories." 
There is more wit than wisdom in the remark, and with the many a smart saying has 
unfortunately a great advantage over a just one. 

It is impossible to say that there is any direct testimony to the existence of Armorial 
bearings in the now accepted sense of the word earlier than the twelfth century, when they 
seem to have been adopted with one accord throughout Europe. Previous to that period 
we read of " white shields " and " red shields " and " gilded shields." In Salmund's Edda 
mention is made of a red shield with a golden border. The Encomiast of Emma speaks merely 
of the glittering effulgence of the shields suspended on the sides of the vessels of Canute. In the 
Anglo-Saxon illuminations we perceive the shields of warriors generally painted white, with red 
and blue borders and circles : on those of our Norman invaders as represented in the Bayeux 
Tapestry, a work at the earliest of the close of the eleventh century, we find crosses, rings, grot- 
esque monsters, and fanciful devices of various descriptions, but nothing approaching a regular 
heraldic figure or disposition of figures. Some of the standards are striped and spotted in a fashion 
which may have originated the pales, bars, and roundels of the succeeding century, but as these 
devices are not repeated on an}'^ of the bearers' shields they cannot be considered as personal 
insignia. 

Thus we see that Heraldry as we know it, Heraldry even as it was understood in its earliest 
stages, had no existence at the time of the Norman Conquest, nor can any authenticated example 
be discovered of a proper Armorial shield prior to the first Crusade. Ere the second had reached 
its termination its usage was extensive and assured. That is all that is known of its origin, but 
undoubtedly — for it is a matter no one has as yet dreamed of disputing — the Crusades have exer- 
cised an influence difficult to truly estimate. Not only are a vast proportion of heraldic " charges " 
easily traceable to the Holy Land, but the assemblage of the flower of European chivalry in all 
its nationalities, all claiming nobility of birth, must have given a great impetus to the progress of 
a science devoted and confined to themselves, apart from the encouragement afforded to it by the 
requirement of some method of distinction amongst themselves. 

A writer of a bygone age has said that " Coates of Armes were inuented by our wise ancestors 
to these 3 ends : The first was to honour and adorn the family of him that had well deserued 
towardes his countrye. The seconde to him more worthy and famous above the rest which had 
not done merit, and thereby they might be prouoked to doe the like. The third was to differ out 
the severall lignes and issues from the noble ancestor descending ; so that the eldest borne might 
be known from the second, and he from the thirde." 

Heraldry was not originated in England, but England was not long in following the lead 
placed before her, and though at no period perhaps within the British Isles has the love and rever- 
ence of Armory reached such a high degree of enthusiasm as has been sometimes accorded to 
Armorial Insignia elsewhere : still since the old Crusading days have our ancestors of each suc- 
ceeding generation handed down a respect and admiration for these marks of lineage, rank, and 
high degree that Socialism and Anarchy, with all their changeabiUty of visage, have failed to 
suppress in spite of the manifold and multifarious methods and manners in which these ideas 
have passed through the land, in the Wars of the Roses, in the Reformation, the Commonwealth, 
the Revolution, and " the Hyde Park tub-thumper." 

" There is no subject more difficult to be dwelt on than that of honourable descent ; none on 
which the world are greater sceptics, none more offensive to them ; and yet there is no quality to 
which every one in his heart pays so great a respect. " — (Sir Egerton Brydges' Autobiography , p. 153) . 

And by reason of this very reverence and respect, Armorial Bearings are one of the earliest 
outward and visible signs which make their appearance when a family commences its rise in the 
scale of social eminence. 



xiv Cbe atuise of arms 

At first, ere their full lustre and significance had been realised, those who bore Arms selected 
them as pleased their fancy, but as a name became glorious so did the pictorial sign upon the shield 
associated with that name become renowned, and a son inherited his father's Arms with his 
father's sword : and Armorial Bearings almost from the very birth of the science have been 
hereditary. 

Let a privilege or a usage be created, and its abuse rapidly follows. Merchants placed 
their " merchant-marks " upon escutcheons, and called them coats-of-arms when as yet their 
rank did not warrant the assumption. New men called themselves by old names and claimed 
the ancient Arms. 

The monks of Battle Abbey are known to have tampered with their roll, and centuries ago 
the heralds deplored and tried to keep in check the vagaries and usurpations of these " painter- 
fellows," as they then described them, referring thus contemptuously to those handicraftsmen 
who undertook the actual labour of cutting seals and emblazoning Arms. Had these handicrafts- 
men stopped their hands at these legitimate limits, httle abuse, comparatively speaking, could 
have crept in, but they did not ; they hankered after the fees — in their eyes veritable flesh-pots of 
Egypt — of the official heralds. Then, as now, the true position and authority of the Officers of 
Arms was not properly known or understood. Then, as now, these " painter-fellows " encroached, 
and then, as now, they profited by the lack of heraldic knowledge current among the general 
public, and they purposed to find, grant, confirm and assign Arms. The Arms these outsiders 
dealt in were Hkewise of but two kinds — firstly, Arms which emanated solely from their own 
imagination, and which were bogus from beginning to end, and secondly, Arms which were 
perfectly legitimate, and which belonged to ancient famihes, which legitimate coats-of-arms these 
" painter-fellows " assigned to other families bearing the same or similar names, without the 
ghost of a pretence, and without the shadow of a po.ssibility of establi.shing a descent from the 
bona-fide holders. That was how the abuse began centuries ago. At the present time this same 
abuse runs riot, and now, as then, it is in the forefront, and the most prominent of all heraldic 
follies. Though beside this particular illegality all others seem but as mere peccadilloes, there 
are many other matters which can but come under the same heading and description. To a 
long-standing abuse, when the legal penalties therefor seem almost to have lapsed into desuetude, 
there is but one remedy, namely, pubhcity. It enlightens those who are sinning through ignor- 
ance, it may prevent others falling into the same errors ; and as to those who are of knowledge 
and aforethought wilfully disregarding the laws of Arms and the laws of the Realm — well, it 
advertises their Httle weaknesses. This remedy I propose to try. One of my critics has asked 
what business it is of mine to criticise Arms when the College of Arms remains silent. It is 
every man's duty, when he sees a wrong, to try to put that wrong right. Moreover, I stand in a 
widely different position from the Officers of Arms. I much question if they are brought into 
contact with one tithe of the heraldic abuses that I am, for people hardly of their own free-will 
exhibit to an accredited Officer of Arms pretensions which they know can be at once detected as 
bogus or illegal. On the other hand, the individuals comprising the world at large seem to fancy | 
that the said world at large, outside themselves, is unable to discover the real character of the i 
Arms they lay claim to. Consequently, as I am simply but another unit in this aforesaid world, 
the Arms and garbled pedigrees have been sent up to me apparently with guileless simplicity, 
either for insertion in this book, " Armorial Families," or in " The Book of Public Arms," or 
for the crests to be included in my edition of " Fairbairn." I had no reason when I commenced 
heraldic writing to have looked with suspicion upon the information which was afforded me, but 
as each successive case I investigated turned out to be a perversion of the truth, my standpoint 
had to change. I found, first of all, that the fact of living in the same county, or in the adjoining 
one for the matter of that, or even in the county adjoining that, was to the ordinary mind qidte 
sufficient evidence for descent to be claimed ("in an unbroken line," my correspondents usually 
state) from any armigerous person or any celebrity* who at any time since the Norman Conquest 
(and many don't even stick at the Conquest) have'had a residence in that county. At first I was 
always inclined to think that a person to make such a statement must at least have some evidence 
to support him, even though it might not be sufficiently stable and consecutive to pass muster as 
a pedigree before the Chapter of the College of Arms. I couldn't have made a greater mistake. 
I then found that people really entitled to a pedigree of perhaps five or six generations, and to a 
modern grant of Arms, were seldom content with it, and it usually came to me as a genealogical \ 
tree of fifteen or sixteen generations, and the Arms had generally been granted by Edward III., 
or at the latest by Queen Elizabeth. And here is a pretty safe way to judge a pedigree if the 
time cannot be spared to investigate it thoroughly. Whenever a pedigree in the male fine runs, 

♦ One family to my knowledge claim descent from Cardinal Wolsey, and have assumed his Arms. 



Cl)c at)U0c of arm0

back far up into antiquity — or I will say even this, whenever a pedigree commences prior to the 
beginning of the eighteenth century, just look at it closely. If in the early part of it there figure 
celebrities, with full dates of marriages and deaths, and details of all the children, and there 
follow later the words, " from whom descends," or the words, " whose descendant," without the 
details of the actual relationships, the odds that that particular pedigree is " faked " are 999 to i. 

Another little faihng that was quickly made apparent to me is this : When a family have been 
illegally making use of Arms for some time, and are then, for some reason or other, induced or 
required to place their Armorial matters upon a legal footing, and a Patent of Arms is obtained 
under the hands and seals of the Kings of Arms, the coat-of-arms which has previously been in use 
is never granted to the person intact. If a desire for a coat similar to the one in use be preferred, 
some alterations and additions to it are introduced, varying according to the discretion, of the 
Officers of Arms and the circumstances of the case, in order to render it a different and new coat-of- 
arms, and to satisfy the requirements of one of the rules of the College, that no two coats-of-arms 
which may be granted by its officers shall be alike.* The usual tale I am told — if the fact of 
the grant being modern by any chance transpires — is, if you please, that the alterations and 
additions are " augmentations " granted for some special service. Some of the older grants simply 
made addiiinns to the coats which had been previously used, and this, to any ordinary individual, 
might lend some semblance to the idea. To the propagators of such fables I would add this fact 
to their knowledge. An " augmentation " proper requires a special warrant from the Sover- 
eign. The " augmentations " legitimately existing are comparatively very few in number, and 
are all very well known. And another foible is this. Very few people care to admit that they 
have had a " grant " of Arms. The usual tale is, " My people had been using these Arms for a 
very long time, but documentary evidence, so very hard to get, &c., &c., couldn't strictly prove 
a legal title to them, &c., so the College of Arms ' confirmed ' them to me with a very slight 
difference." The facts generally turn out to be that the Arms were " found " for 3s. 6d. at an 
heraldic stationer's, perhaps ten or perhaps twenty years ago, or perhaps supplied gratis with a 
"guinea box of stationery." It was then afterwards ascertained that they were quoted in Burke's 
" General Armory " as belonging to a family of the same name, which family were promptly 
claimed as ancestors. " The Arms are the same, you know, we must be descended from them." 
There are few people who could summon up sufficient audacity to offer to the critics such another 
pedigree as the notorious Coultart genealogy ; but there is still a good deal of unblushing 
audacity in existence. Times out of number have I been informed that Arms submitted to me 
have been granted, or confirmed, or certified, by the Officers of Arms. Even the dates of grants 
have been quoted to me when no such grants exist, and the certificates when asked for are never 
to be found. I caU those sort of statements untruths pure and simple. 

Small wonder that with such a plenitude of these falsehoods my credulity waned below zero, 
and now is non-existent. Of the hundreds with whom I have been brought in contact I could 
count on the fingers of my one hand those people whom I know at the very beginning have told 
me the truth, the whole truth, and nothing but the truth. Consequently, though it is a brutal 
admission to have to make, I cannot beUeve, and do not believe for one moment, any man's 
account of his own family, or take his word concerning them. No matter how truthful a man 
may be, his probity never seems to have stability on that one point. I think the Archangel Gabriel 
would have " made the usual mistakes." 

If any ordinary individual tell you he is descended in the male line from some one who figures 
upon the glorious roll of Battle Abbey, or that his ancestor " came over with the Conqueror," 
write him down a perverter of the truth at once. Mr. Evelyn Philip Shirley published some 
number of years ago a book which deserves a greater name and a far wider reputation than it 
has received. I refer to " The Noble and Gentle Men of England." He took a far less ambitious 
standpoint than the Norman Conquest, simply including within his covers all those then Arms- 
bearing families who had held their land in legitimate uninterrupted male descent since the reign 
of King Henry VII. to the present day. Of all the landholders of to-day, of all the county famihes 
within or without ,the pages of Walford ; of all the names in " Burke's Peerage " or in 
Kelly's " Upper Ten Thousand," how many famihes titled and untitled together, think you does 
his book contain ? Three hundred and thirty. Some number of the very older famihes are Saxon, 
but the great majority only take their start from the Wars of the Roses, that great social upheaval 
which shook to its very foundation the aristocracy of England. Read " De Nova Villa," and 
read the " Last of the Barons," if you wish to know what became of the ancient families of England. 

* I do not wish any opportunity for misconstruction. At the times of the Visitations, when two families— though 
not the least relationship might exist between them — proved a right to identical .A.rms, these were allowed to them both 
and the above rule has only applied to grants.

Of the twenty-five barons who affixed their seals to " Magna Charta," of which we so proudly 
boast, not a solitary proved male descendant is known to exist. 

Fuller, writing in his book, " Worthies of Bedfordshire," says : — " Hungry Time hath made 
a glutton's meal on this Catalogue of Gentry (the list of gentry of the reign of Henry VI.), and 
hath left but a very little morsel for manners remaining." 

The pedigrees in " Burke's Peerage " are lax enough, but even there but one hundred and 
eleven are taken back to the time of the Norman Conquest, and of these forty-nine are Saxon, 
Welsh, Scottish, or Irish. There are nearly nine hundred peers and over twelve hundred baronets, 
and all their relations within the covers of " Burke's Peerage " ; there are nearly five thousand 
famihes in the " Landed Gentry," and all their relations ; there were sixteen thousand names in 
Walfofd's " County Families " ; there are twenty- four thousand individuals in " Kelly." As I 
have said, but sixty-two pedigrees in the Peerage are taken back to the Normans, and Shirley 
admits but three hundred and thirty famihes. The deduction is obvious. 

The first point I wish to draw attention to is the wholesale display of bogus arms — perhaps I 
should be more correct in saying the wholesale bogus display of Arms. These, as I have previously 
stated, are of two kinds : i. Arms which, apart from the question of ownership, are of no legal 
origin ; 2. Legal Arms used by people to whom they don't belong. The latter predominate. But 
first of all it is necessary to make it clear what constitutes the right to bear Arms. 

The right differs widely in the three kingdoms and they all differ widely from the laws current 
in the rest of Europe. But now, and throughout this Introduction, I shall confine myself to the 
United Kingdom. It is of no use for the blind to lead the blind, and I have no sufficiently inti- 
mate knowledge of either the heraldic or the common law in vogue in the various countries of 
Europe to warrant my offering to teach others what I am by no means sure I know myself. 

In the infancy of Heraldry no control existed or was exercised by anybody over Armorial 
matters. It was. 

" The good old rule, the simple plan, 
That they should take who have the power, 
And they .should keep who c.in." 

But this era was of short duration. Almost the first step in the United Kingdom towards estab- 
hshing control was taken in England, and the Corporation of the College of Arms was established 
by Royal Charter in the reign of Richard III. Now, there are very many people who grandilo- 
quently assert that " they don't recognise the authority of the College of Arms." Such 
a statement sounds very big, but it is pure nonsense. They might just as well proclaim that 
they do " not recognise " the Sovereign or the Houses of Parhament. And I have also found that 
any mention of the authority of the College of Arms is usually the signal for an outburst of abuse 
(and abuse pure and simple, not criticism) against the College itself and its officials. I v/ill be 
no party to any such controversy. Nothing I can say will add to or detract from their authority, 
or give more weight to its expression. I can simply make the knowledge of it more public ; 
for one cannot but admit that nothing can alter the fact that the Officers of Lyon Office (for 
Scotland), of Ulster's Office (for Ireland), and of the College of Arms (for the whole of the rest of 
His Majesty's dominions) have the sole official authority and control of Armorial matters. 

I am not writing on behalf of any of the Colleges or Offices of Arms ; I am not connected in 
any way with them. I am not writing at the instigation of any Officer of Arms. I am simply a 
member of the general pubHc, brought closely into touch with the laws and the practice of Arms ; 
and if the expression of the knowledge I have obtained prevent any person ignorantly following the 
tempting and well-worn ruts of heraldic abuse, I shall be satisfied. 

Now arms are a matter of honour. The Sovereign is the fountain of honour. 

In the reign of Henry V. (1417) a Royal Proclamation was made that no man in future be 
allowed to bear arms without authority. This has been printed in full on several occasions. The 
next step was the consolidation of the various Officers of Arms in England into the Corporation of 
the College of Arms. The two Charters by which they hold and exercise their authority are given 
in Noble's " History of the College of Arms." I don't ask any one unquestioningly to take my 
word that the authority exists. They can convince themselves by referring to the Charters in 
question, to the Royal Warrants appointing the Visitations, to the Reports submitted by the Law 
Officers of the Crown to His Majesty King George III. in connection with the dispute between the 
Officers of the Order of the Bath and the Officers of the College of Arms, and to the Patent appoint- 
ing any King of Arms to his office, which, to a certain extent, recites his powers and privileges. 
Perhaps the most important of all are the warrants commanding the Visitations. 

So much for England. Let us now see how matters stand in Scotland. The whole subject 
is very tersely and pertinently put forward in the " Ordinary of Scottish Arms," from which I am 
permitted to quotp. 



Ci3C 3l3iise of arm0 xvu 

" The earliest Scottish Armorial in existence is said to have been prepared by or under the 
superintendence of Sir David Lindsay of the Mount about 1542. It is impossible to say whether 
it took from the first an official character, but that there must have been some such recognised 
record before the close of the sixteenth century is clear from several references which are made 
to the Liber insigniorum , or " Book of Arms," in the Acts of the Scottish Parliament at that 
period. In 1592 an Act was passed authorising the Lyon and his heralds to hold visitations 
throughout the realm in order to distinguish the Arms of the various noblemen and gentlemen, 
and ' thaireftir to matriculat thame in thair buikis and registeris.' It is unfortunate that this 
permission to make heraldic visitations was never largely taken advantage of ; had it been, and 
had the registers indicated in the Act been properly kept, it is unlikelv that the Privy Council 
would have, \vithin the next forty years, practically authenticated as an official record Sir David 
Lindsay's MS. above referred to, which they did in the following terms : — 

" ' This Booke and register of Armes, done by Sir David Lindesay of the Month, Lyone King 
of Arms, reg. Ja. 5, conteines 106 leaves, which register was approvine be the Lordies of his 
Majesties Most Honourable Privie Counsale at HaUerude hous 9 December 1630. 

" ' Sir James Balfour, Lyone. 
" ' Thomas Drysdaill, Hay Herauld. 
" ' Register.' " 



^a' 



" Whatever may have become of the official registers previous to the date of the 
commencement of the present one, it is certain that many collections of Arms were from to time 
made, both by the Officers of Arms and others. Sir Robert Forman, Lyon (1555-1567), presented 
to Queen Mary a roll containing 267 Scottish coats-of-arms. In addition to the ' Workman 
MS.' now in the Lyon Office, at least four other Armorials belonging to the sixteenth century, and 
relating to Scotland, are in existence and were shown at the Heraldic Exhibition held at 
Edinburgh in 1891, while the seventeenth century collections are comparatively numerous. 
As time went on, however, the absence of an authentic and official Register of Arms was more 
and more felt : in 1639 the Committee on Articles appointed the Lyon to do diUgence for 
cognoscing and matriculating all Arms, and to represent the same to the Privy Council, that 
they might take some course to prevent Arms being assumed irregularly. In 1662 it was 
apparently found that the registration of Arms was more neglected than ever, though Cromwell 
had appointed one if not two Lyons during his administration of the Government. By an 
Act passed in that year it was provided inter alia that ' . . . Considering what disorders and 
confusions have arisen and are dayly occasioned by the usurpation of Cadents, who against 
all rules assume to themselffs the armes of the cheeff house of the familie out of which they are 
descendit, and that other mean persones who can nowayes deryve thair succession from the 
families whose names they bear, as they have just assumed the name, doe therafter weare the 
coat of that name to which they pretend without any warrand or grund whatsumever, . . . 
no yi:»unger brother or caudent of any familie presume to carie the armes of that familie bot with 
such distinctions as shall be given by the Lyon King of Armes'; ' and it was likewise provided that 
all persons were to have their Arms examined and renewed by the Lyon, and inserted in his 
register. This Act, however, did not remain long in the Statute-Book : considerable dissatisfac- 
tion appears to have been created by it, possibly from the amount of the fees which it entitled 
the Lyon to exact at the funeral solemnities of the nobiHty and their wives, and it was repealed 
in the following year, 1663. It is not very clear whether the above quoted allusion to the Lyon 
Register can be taken as implying that at that time there was such a record in existence, or 
whether it merely means that a Register was then to be commenced. But as the present 
Register was certainly commenced within the next ten years as new, it may fairly be inferred 
that no official Register of Arms, with the exception of Sir David Lindsay's MS. mentioned above 
as having been approved by the Privy Council, was in existence at the period of the Restoration. 
What had become of the old Registers, if such there had been, has been a matter of some specula- 
tion : both water and fire have been held to be answerable for their destruction. It is by some 
thought that they may have formed part of that cargo of records originally carried off to London 
by Cromwell, and ultimately jettisoned from the frigate ' Eagle ' or lost with the ship ' EHza- 
beth' of Burntisland, when, owing to the representations of the Scottish Parliament, they 
were being restored to their proper home. On the other hand, Amot in his ' History of 
Edinburgh ' mentions that the Lyon Office Records were burned in a fire which took place about 
1670, and that the Act under which the present Register was instituted was in consequence 
passed shortly afterwards. As, however, there is no mention made of any such fire in that Act, 
which merely alludes in general terms to the ' many irregularities of these late times, ' it can 



xviii Cf)e ZhUBt of 3rm9 

hardly be regarded as authentic history, and it is unnecessary to do more than allude to the causes 
which have been thought likely to have induced the Scottish Legislature to take the steps they 
did for the formation of an entirely new Register. It has been shown that an attempt had already 
been made in 1662 to improve the Registration of Arms, but it had come to nothing. In 1672 
the Parliament again addressed themselves to the subject, and this time with success : they 
had the advantage of a member who was himself well acquainted with Heraldry — Sir George 
Mackenzie of Rosehaugh — and he not improbably took a special interest in drawing the Act, which 
took its place on the Statute-Book as the Act of 1672, cap. 47 ^ It ratified generally the Act of 
1592 so far as it related to visitations and the penalties to be inflicted on persons using Arms 
without authorit}^ and it ordered all persons of whatsoever degree, who were in the habit of 
using Arms, to give in a description of such Arms and of their lineage, to the Lyon Clerk, in order 
that they might be distinguished with ' congruent differences.' and that the Lyon might enter 
them in his books and registers, and might grant Arms to ' vertuous and well deserving persones.' 
The Register now instituted was to be considered as the true and unrepealable rule of all Arms 
and Bearings in Scotland, and was ordered to remain in the Lyon Office as a public register of 
the kingdom for all time coming. All persons who used Arms after the expiration of a year an d 
a day from the passing of the Act rendered themselves liable to a fine of one hundred pounds, 
and the goods on which the Arms were engraved were to be escheat to the king." 

The Act reads as follows, and I think it better to quote it in full, as it definitely lays down 
the important point that cadets in Scotland are not entitled to bear the Arms of the head of 
their family until they have been matriculated to them with a difference : — 

Copy of the Act concerning the Priviledges of the Office of Lyon King at Ar.mes. 

47. Our Soveraigne Lord Considering, that albeit by the 125 Act of the 12 Parlia' holden by 
his Maiesties grandfather in the yeir 1592 the usurpation of Armes by any of his Maiesties leidges 
without the authority of Lyon King of Armes is expresly discharged ; And that in order thereto. 
Power and Commission is granted to the Lyon King of Armes or his Deputes, to visite the whole 
Armes of Noblemen, Barrons and Gentlemen, & to matriculate the same in their Registers, and to 
fine in One Hundreth pounds all others who shall unjustlie usurp armes; As also to Escheit all such 
goods and geir as shall have unwarrantable Armes ingraven on them. Yet amongst the many 
irregularities of these late times, very many have assumed to themselvis Armes, who should 
bear none, and many of these who may in law bear have assumed to themselvis ye Armes of 
their chieff , without distinctions, or Armes which were not carried by them or their predicessors. 
Therefor His Maiestie, with advice and consent of his Estates of Parlia' Ratifies and Approves 
the foresaid Act of ParUament ; and for the more vigorous prosecution thereof Doth hereby 
Statute and Ordain that lettirs of publication of this present Act be direct to be execute at the 
mercat cross of the held Burghs of the Shires, Stewartries, Bailliaries of Royalty &Regallitie and 
Royal Burrowghs chargeing all and sundry Prelates, Noblemen, Barons & Gentlemen who make 
use of any Armes or Signes armoriall within the space of one yeir aftir the said publication, to 
bring or send ane account of what armes or Signes armoriall they are accustomed to use ; and 
whither they be descendants of any familie the Armes of which familie they bear, and of what 
Brother of the ffamilie they are descended ; With Testificats from persones of Honour, Noblemen 
or Gentlemen of qualitie anent the Verity of their having and useing those Armes, and of their 
descent as afoirsa, to be delivered either to the Clerk of the Jurisdiction where the persones 
duells, or to the Lyon Clerk at his office in Edinburgh, at the option of the party, upon their 
receipts gratis without paying any thing therefore : Which Receipt shall be a sufficient exoneration 
to them, from being obleidged to produce again, to the effect that the Lyon King of Armes may 
distinguish the sds Armes with congruent differences, and may matriculat the same in his 
Bookes & Registers, and may give Armes to vertuous and well deserving Persones, and Extracts of 
all Armes, expressing the blasoning of the Arms undirhis hand andseall of office ; For Which shall 
be payed to the Lyon the soume of Tuentie merkes by Every Prelate &Nobleman, and Ten merks 
by every Knight & Baron, and five merkes by every other persone bearing Armes and noe more : 
And his Mat'" hereby Dispenses with any penalties that may arise be this or any proceiding act 
for bearing Armes, befor the Proclamation to be issued hereupon. And it is Statute & Ordained 
with consent forsd that the sd Register shall be respected as the true and unrepeallable rule of 
all Armes and Bearings in Scotland to remain with the Lyons office as a publict Register of the 
Kingdome, and to be transmitted to his Successors in all tyme comeing : And that whosoevir 
shall use any other Armes any manner of way, aftir the expireing of year & day from the date 



Cbe abu0e of ^vm0 xix 

of the Proclamation to be issued hereupon in maner forsd shall pay One Hundred pounds money 
toties quoties to the Lyon, and shall likewise escheat to his Maiestie all the moveable Goods & Geir 
upon which the fds Amies are engraven, or otherwise represented. And his Maiestie with consent 
forsd Declaires that it is onlie allowed for Noblemen & Bishopes to subscrive by their titles ; And 
that all others shall subscrive their Christned names, or the initiall letter thereof with there 
Sirnames, and may if they please adject the designations of their Lands, prefixing the word Of 
to the fds designations. And the Lyon King at Armes and his Brethren are required to be carefull 
of informeing themselvis of the contraveiners heirof , and that they acquaint his Maiesties Councill 
therewith, who are hereby impowered to punish them as persones disobedient to and contraveiners 
of the Law. It is hkewise hereby Ucclaired that the Lyon and his Brethren Heraulds are Judges 
in all such causes concerning the malversation of Messingers in their office, and are to enjoy all 
other pri viledges belonging to their Office which are secured to them by the Lawes of this Kingdome 
and according to former practice. 

Under a strict interpretation of the above Act, this opportunity of " matriculation " of 
ancient Scottish Arms could be held to have long since lapsed. I am in no way speaking for 
Lyon, nor do I wish to in any way hamper his discretion, but I believe it to be correct, and 
consequently it cannot be too widely known that the present Lyon King is by no means averse, 
if satisfactory evidence can be produced, to still exercise his prerogative and discretion, and 
matriculate at the present date Arms which can be shown to have been authoritatively borne 
prior to the passing of the above Act. 

In Ireland the powers of Ulster King of Arms are best defined by the Patent creating the 
first Ulster. This can be seen in " Rymer's Foedara," but most of the powers of Ulster King 
are recited in the Patent of each successive occupant of the office. 

Owing to the fact that the records in Ulster's Office are not so complete as is the case in 
England, Ulster King of Arms has the power in his discretion to confirm Arms which it can be 
shown have been continuously borne for a certain number of generations (I beheve four), even 
though they may have been previously of no legal authority, and this power is continually 
e.xercised ; but as a general, nay, an almost invariable rule, some mark is placed upon the Arms, 
though usually a very trifling one, to distinguish in the eyes of the learned those Arms borne 
by virtue of a confirmation from those for which the right has been fully proved. 

Briefly, then, to sum up, to establish the right to bear Arms in England it is necessary to 
prove legitimate male descent from some person to whom a grant of Arms has been made, or 
from some person to whom Arms were confirmed at the Visitations ; in Ireland, the same, or 
else from some person to whose descendants Arms have been confirmed. Failing this, there is 
no alternative, but to obtain a grant of Arms yourself, or, if you be of Irish descent, and can 
produce the necessary evidence, a confirmation. In Scotland, if you are the heir male of a grantee, 
or of any one to whom Arms have been matriculated, you are entitled to bear these Arms ; if 
you can only establish a junior descent, you must have the Arms matriculated to yourself, 
e\'en if it be your father who is the grantee ; if you cannot show any such descent, you must 
petition for a grant. 

Now with regard to the bogus display of Arms, there are sins of omission and sins of commission. 
Very few people indeed claim less than they are entitled to, and the only sin of omission of any 
consequence is the cool disregard which is paid to the marks of illegitimacy. A person of 
illegitimate birth has assuredly no Arms. Many people will tell you that it is simply a question of 
placing what they colloquially term the " bar sinister," upon the escutcheon, in exactly the same 
manner as a second son in England or Ireland may charge his Arms with a crescent, the third 
with a mullet, the fourth with a martlet, and so on.* But this is not the case at all. He must 
either do one of two things. He must petition for a grant of Arms, in which case he is under no 
necessity to disclose his illegitimacy. But he wiU have an entirely new coat-of-arms granted to 
him. Or else he must first prove of whom he is the natural son, and then petition for a Royal 
License to bear the name and Arms of his putative father. If he adopt the latter course, 
and the Royal License be granted to him, he will find he is permitted to bear the Arms with " due 
and proper marks of distinction." Now the grant of a perfectly new coat with no mark of 
illegitimacy, costs exactly the same as the grant of the old one with these " due and proper marks," 
so that if a man deliberately elects to proclaim his relationship to any family, it is only fair to 
other and legitimate members of that family that the manner of his relationship should also be 
indicated, for his birth cannot be an equivalent of their legitimate descent. 

* The laws of Anns only provide differences for nine sons of the same father. A correspondent wrote to me in 
good faith, to ask what his difference would be as the twenty-first surviving son of the same father and mother. I was 
forced to admit I did not know. I wonder what would be done. 



XX Cl)e at)U0e of ^tm0 

I grant it is through no fault of the man himself, and consequently I refrain from giving any 
list of those whom I know to be offending in this respect. There are several in the " Peerage," 
and matters are certainly made easier for them by the fact that these ' ' due and proper marks of 
distinction " do not always figure upon their Arms therein. This is very unjust to their legitimate 
relatives, and it is breaking the law of Arms, and is not in keeping with the terms therein recited, 
upon which the Royal License to bear the name and Arms was conceded to them. 

And concerning this colloquial term " bar sinister." There cannot possibly be such a 
thing, for the " bar " in Armory is neither dexter nor sinister. The term is merely a misnomer 
for " bend sinister." The bend sinister is given in all heraldic books as an ancient mark of 
illegitimacy ; but it has long since been discarded, and is now never granted on a shield, though 
a bendlet wavy sinister is sometimes, in fact nearly always, placed across the crest. A baton 
sinister, which is a bendlet sinister couped, is the mark reserved for Royal illegitimates, but it is 
not universal. I can call to mind at the moment no coat-of-arms correctly in use at the present 
day upon which the bend sinister occurs save the Shiffner coat (which I believe is of foreign 
origin) and the Burne- Jones coat, and in these it does not occur as a mark of illegitimacy ; nor 
do I know of any coat in use which bears the mark which the laws of Arms are said to provide 
for the base-born son of a noble woman. I find the mark now in use is not generally known 
even amongst those who profess to have made some study of Heraldry, and I am only aware of 
one book in which it is mentioned ; and curiously enough it is not a mark of illegitimacy at all 
in Scotland : though, knowing its English character, I believe it is a little fought shy of even 
there. Consequently, as I have not the least desire to make it in any way more difficult for 
those who have the misfortune to bear it, I have no intention of advertising what it is. The 
only other sin of omission that I know is the objection some few people have to the double coat 
consequent upon a double name. For instance, if your name be Jones, and you get a Royal 
License for yourself and your descendants to bear the additional name of Smith, and to bear the 
Arms of Smith quarterly with those of Jones, that quarterly Smith-Jones coat becomes one 
indivisible coat, and you have no more right to separate it again than you would have to discard 
half the charges upon a simple coat because you didn't like them. 

But when we come to the sins of commission, their name is legion. In the first place, by 
the law of Arms, the right of bearing either crest or motto is denied to a lady. In the olden days 
a Joan of Arc was a wild exception, and it was universally conceded that no woman was capable 
of wearing a helmet. The " new woman " may have changed this into a fiction in her crusade 
against her complementary sex, but in the far-off ages Amazons, either Christian or Barbarian, 
were an unheard-of quantity, and the laws of Arms were irrevocably constructed centuries ago. 
Anyhow the fiction (I daren't call it anything else) did exist, and consequently, as the crest was 
then an ornament inseparable from the helmet, the right to a feminine display thereof was denied. 
It is so still. The motto, anciently the " cri-de-guerre " likewise, the shield also. Now the 
domain of the " lady e-f aire " in olden time was at the spinning-wheel — -would that it were so 
still — and the " distaff " was a peculiarly feminine ornament and prerogative. The distaff was 
supposed to resemble the heraldic lozenge in form and figure — -it does so in some slight degree. 
Consequently the law of Arms allows a maiden lady to bear the Arms, upon a lozenge, which 
appear on her father's shield. When left a widow, she impales her late husband's Arms with 
her father's, and bears that combination upon a lozenge. Now here is another Uttle anomaly. 
Heraldic law knows no Married Woman's Property Act, and concedes them no " separate estate," 
and consequently in his lifetime the husband bears the Arms " for his wife," and the impalement 
takes its place in his shield and under the protection of his helmet. If the wife be an heraldic 
" heiress " (the exact meaning is explained later on), though he is at hberty still simply to 
impale the coat if he prefer, the husband is allowed instead to place the Arms of his wife's family 
upon a smaU escutcheon in the centre of his own shield, called an " escutcheon of pretence," 
because through his wife he " pretends " to the representation of her family. And if the said 
heiress survives her husband, she usually places her father's Arms on the same escutcheon in the 
centre of a lozenge of her husband's Arms. And the " fiction " of the feminine non-ownership 
of Arms is kept up further. By the English law of Arms, a " difference " mark is ipso facto 
provided for the second and all younger sons to place upon their father's coat-of-arms. There 
are none for daughters, each bearing exactly the same Arms and differences as the father bore. 
But the Scottish law, which provides that all younger sons shall have no Arms until a matriculation 
of their father's with a difference shall have been made to them, allows all the daughters to bear 
their father's Arms upon a lozenge, and allows the husbands to impale these Arms without further 
" difference." 

But the point is that widows and unmarried girls must show that they have no helmet to 



Cfie ^him of arms xxi 

protect them ; in other words, they must bear their Armorial Insignia upon a lozenge (the same 
figure as a diamond upon a pack of cards), and they must not use a crest. 

And now, on the subject of the conjunction of the /\.rms of man and wife, I will not inflict 
upon you the old heraldic jargon of " baron et femme," but the rule is simply this. First of all 
find out whether your father-in-law is or was legally entitled to bear Arms. Don't think that 
because you are entitled to bear Arms anything will do for an impalement, because it 
won't. Both of them must be irreproachable. Then divide your shield by a straight 
line down the middle ; place the whole of your own Arms on the dexter side,* and place the 
pronominal coat of your wife's father in the remaining half. This is called " impaling " 
the two coats. 

If you are not entitled to Arms yourself, you are not at liberty to take the Arms of your wife's 
family. Her rights to bear or transmit any Arms or quarterings, whatever they are, become and 
must remain dormant until such time as you or the descendants of your marriage with her choose 
to establish a right to Arms in the male line. If you are Commander, a Companion, or a knight 
of any Order having the right to surround your own escutcheon with the ribbon or collar of the 
Order, you must use two escutcheons. On the one are simply your own Arms so surrounded, 
and on the other your own Arms impaled with those of your wife's family ; the idea being that 
your knighthood is personal to yourself, and that you cannot share it with your wife. Just the 
same, a bishop cannot share his episcopal rank with his wife, and he has to use two escutcheons 
if his wife be entitled to Arms. The Scottish Anglican bishops and the Irish AngUcan bishops 
created since the disestablishment of the Church in Ireland, and all Roman Catholic bishops, 
have no Arms for their sees. If a woman be of higher rank than her husband, or possess rank in 
her owTi right, she cannot share it with him. For instance, take a peeress in her own right. By 
right of her heirship, the husband would place the Arms of the family upon an escutcheon of 
pretence upon his own, and he is allowed to place her coronet above the escutcheon of pretence, 
but he has no right to her supporters, or to place her coronet above his own escutcheon. Here 
again two escutcheons must be used, for on the sinister side of his own he must repeat her father's 
Arms upon a lozenge, surmounted by her coronet and between her supporters. In the same 
way the husband could not claim a share in a double-headed eagle, if the wife's family were 
entitled to display Arms upon it. 

There is one other point. Care must always be taken that the whole pronominal coat of your 
wife's father be impaled. If he have a double name and a sub-quarterly coat, you must impale 
the whole of the coat which stands for his surnames. Further, by the Scottish law of Arms you 
do not become ipso facto entitled to quarter Arms ; you are only entitled to bear the coat which 
has been matriculated to you in Lyon Office. If you want quarterings introduced, you must 
get a fresh matriculation and after they are matriculated you cannot drop them without 
rematriculation ; so that, if you go north of the Tweed for your wife, you must be careful to 
impale everj^thing that has been matriculated to her father. Now in England the practice is 
different. I distinctly say it is not illegal or incorrect in the slightest degree, but at the same time 
it is considered rather " bad form " to impale more than the simple coat which stands for your 
wife's surname. Your wife's father may be entitled to fifty quarterings, but if the name be 
Smith, you simply impale the Arms of Smith. 

The next point is, what constitutes an heiress ? The heraldic meaning of the word is very 
different from its colloquial usage. Neither land nor money have anything to do with it. An 
heiress in Heraldry need not possess or transmit the value of one brass farthing. What she must 
transmit is the representation of her father or her family. If her father have no sons she is an 
" heiress," of if she have sisters a " co-heiress." If she have brothers she is not an heiress unless 
or until the issue of these brothers has become extinct. If the brothers die leaving no sons, but 
leaving daughters, these daughters become the heiresses and not the sister. If the issue of the 
brothers eventually becomes absolutely extinct both in the male and female lines, then the sisters 
(themselves, if ahve, or if not in their descendants) become the heiresses, even though the extinc- 
tion may not occur for hundreds of years. On marrying an " heiress " or " co-heiress," as I have 
said, a man is allowed, but not required, to place the Arms of her family upon an escutcheon of 
pretence in the centre of his own, and his children are entitled by the English law to take as 
quarterings the whole of these Arms and quarterings which their mother was entitled to transmit, 
and add them to anything their father may have possessed. Occasionally — but very very seldom — 
a woman may be an heiress to her mother but not her father, or vice versa, and in these cases 
special rules apply. By the Scottish law, if you inherit quarterings you must get them matricu- 

* This is another heraldic fiction. You are always supposed to look at a shield from behind, so that the dexter half 
is really the half upon your left-hand side, as you look at a shield in the ordinary way.

lated to yourself before using them. The English law does not make the registering of them 
compulsory, but apart from the desirabihty of perpetuating evidence, it is always advisable to 
submit your claim to the officers of the CoDege, and get your right adjudicated upon and recorded 
and allowed before assuming quarterings ; so very often some or all require careful investigation, 
and, speaking advisedly, so few people, even amongst those who have made a study of Armory, 
know how to marshal them correctly. 

But two points I would draw special attention to are these : No woman is an heiress until the 
death of her father. There is always the possibihty of his marrying again and having sons, so 
that until your father-in-law is dead you are only at liberty to " impale." 

You do not necessarily quarter your mother's Arms. Find out if she be an heiress. And 
even if your mother be an heiress, and her mother an heiress as well, you cannot quarter the Arms 
of your grandmother's family until you have proved that your mother's father was also entitled 
to Arms. One faulty coat invahdates everything that comes after it. So that, before you draw 
up wonderful schemes of quarterings, find out if all the coats will hold water. Quarterings seem 
to be an especial weakness of some people. I had a claim to nearly lOO sent up to me not long 
ago along with a claim to a dormant Baronetcy. Even the very first coat could not be substan- 
tiated. But some families are undoubtedly entitled to a very great number. The Lane-Fox 
family have proved 136, and Sir Lambton Loraine's children will have very nearly as many, and 
I fancy so would Sir Humphrey de Trafford if he went to the trouble of proving them. I am told 
that the Duke of Northumberland is entitled to over 500, but I doubt it. Anyhow, at the Herald's 
College, I beHeve, the record is held by the family of Lloyd of Stockton, who have proved and 
recorded 323. 

Now a word or two about crests. At the pubhcation of my edition of " Fairbairn's Book of 
Crests," one of my reviewers gave himself away at the very commencement of a long and very 
appreciative review, by the remark that the book " would commend itself to those who, whilst 
not aspiring to the dignity of a coat-of-arms, rightly thought themselves entitled to something 
more than a mere monogram, and so laid claim to possessing a crest." With all due deference 
to the aforesaid gentleman, such an idea is utterly wrong. At the present moment, though 
there is many a coat without a crest, I beheve I am correct in saying, there is not a single crest 
legally in existence that is not part of a complete achievement. I am afraid the abominable 
advertisement so famiUar to our eyes, " What is your crest and what is your motto ? " &c., is 
much to blame for this very erroneous idea. At the beginning of Armory the crest was an extra 
distinction — much the same as supporters are at the present day — and the old Heraldry books 
allude to a time when none below the rank of a knight were entitled to display a crest. 
Consequently many of the really old coats have no crest belonging thereto, and it can generally be 
shown that amongst ancient families the crest is of more recent date than the Arms. One exception, 
and only one, have I come across, and though I have mentioned the matter to several Officers of 
Arms, I can learn of no other. This is the Buckworth crest — one of the two belonging to Sir 
Charles Buckworth-Herne-Soame, Baronet. The Arms were exhibited at the time of the Visita- 
tions, and though the crest was passed the Arms were not, but the Arms were rectified at a later 
date. That is the only case I know. 

So may I impress the fact that you cannot have a crest unless you are legally entitled to a 
coat-of-arms. 

Another abuse with regard to crests is the promiscuous bearing of two, three, four, or five 
crests. I have never seen more than five in England. The law in the United Kingdom is 
that you can, in the ordinary matter of course, only possess one. Probably the abuse has crept 
in with the craze for double surnames. If you obtain a Royal License to bear a double or treble 
surname, you probably acquire the right — but such right only in accordance with the terms of 
the Royal License — to bear one crest for each surname ; or even if you change your name, and 
yet obtain permission to quarter the Arms for the new and the old surname, you would be 
entitled to two ; but if your Royal License distinctly state that you shall bear the new name and 
Arms " in lieu of " the old one, then you have only the right to the one. If you want the two, 
you should take care the terms of the petition make provision for that. The late Duke of 
Buckingham and Chandos had five, but he had five surnames (Temple-Nugent-Brydges- 
Chandos-Grenville) ; and I know of no greater number legitimately used in the 
United Kingdom. 

Of course, there are exceptions. When a family obtain a grant of Arms, and then subsequently 
prove their right to an older grant, they become entitled to both coats and both crests ; but 
this does not apply to two or three matriculations in Scotland. The last matriculation supersedes 
everything of a previous date. 



Clie ^bu0c of 3cm5 xxiii 

Duplicate crests often occur through one being a crest of augmentation, as in the cases of 
Lord Combermere, Lord Gough, Lord Nelson, and many others. There are some few instances 
where additional crests have been granted without being crests of augmentation ; but this is 
very exceptional. Lord Garvagh, Lord Bute, and Lord Camden are cases I can call to mind. 

A point with regard to crests that is plainly an abuse is the encircHng of them (and coats- 
of-arms as well for the matter of that) with Garters, or with ribbons, whether bearing mottoes 
or not. This is a privilege confined, and very strictly, to Knights, Commanders, and Companions 
of the various Orders. Consequently an ordinary individual is very wrong in adorning his 
achievement in this manner. Even if the motto upon the Garter be changed, it can only be 
said to shghtly lessen the offence. Yet there are several families legitimately possessing mottoes 
employed by one or other of the Orders. 

And, as to another little weakness, if your crest should legally be borne upon a wreath, don't 
place it upon a chapeau, or issuing from a coronet. 

In England the College of Arms disclaims all jurisdiction over mottoes. If it is wished, any 
motto, to which no objection offers, is painted below the emblazonment in the margin of a Patent, 
but, save in rare instances, it is not mentioned in the wording, and forms no part of the grant, 
and it is a comparatively modern innovation for it to be inserted even in the painting ; so that 
the rule for those people who come within the jurisdiction of the Heralds' College is this, that 
unless the motto is specially mentioned in the wording of the Patent, or unless it be charged upon 
the shield itself, or in some way attached to and forming a constituent part of the crest, any 
motto may be assumed, altered, or discarded at the pleasure of the wearer. As far as the laws 
of the College are concerned, you can quote a psalm or a scene out of Shakespeare in your escroll 
if it so please you. And you are at liberty to place your motto where you like, — above your 
crest, below the arms, or in any other position in which you can find room for it, though custom 
appears to rule that it shall find its place under the shield. In Scotland the law is diam.etrically 
opposite. The mottoes are always mentioned in the Patents of grant or matriculation, and are 
unchangeable ; and moreover their position is stated, and must be adhered to. It is usually 
over the crest. Book-plate designers might take a note of this fact. In Ireland the position 
is about half way between these two extremes, inasmuch as if a motto he recorded with your coat 
you are expected to make use of that particular one. 

As to supporters, though there is a good deal of abuse concerning their usage, there is no 
definite rule that can be laid down. Ulster and Lyon Kings have absolute power to grant 
supporters to whomsoever they will. But little advantage has been taken of this power in Ireland, 
and practically the same rules hold good as obtain in England. Moreover, the present Lyon 
King of Arms, I believe, considers it well to keep within these same bounds in the case of new 
grants. But former Lyons thought nothing of the kind, and granted them to all and sundry who 
would pay the fees, and some number of English Baronets went to the trouble and expense of 
obtaining grants of supporters in Lyon Office. These grants, of course, were idtra vires. All 
chiefs of clans and heads of famihes claimed the right, and it was usually conceded to them if 
they cared to pay ; so that north of the Tweed the only rule that can be quoted is that no one is 
entitled to them unless they are matriculated in Lyon Office, and the larger half of them are not. 
I hope before long to publish a list of those who are. 

In England the law is very straightforward. Only those people to whom they have been 
granted — and their successors or not, according to the hmitations of the Patent — are entitled to 
make use of them. And such grants are only issued to Peers, Knights of the Garter, Thistle, and 
St. Patrick,^- and Knights Grand Cross of the other Orders, unless the grant be made as an 
augmentation or otherwise, pursuant to a warrant from the Sovereign. Supporters granted to a 
Peer usually are limited to those upon whom the title shall descend, likewise those granted by 
Royal Warrant to Baronets, e.g.. Guise, Otway, Guinness. Supporters granted to a Knight 
Grand Cross are personal to himself. And I would point out that supporters granted to a 
Knight Grand Cross who is subsequently created a Peer, do not descend with the Peerage, unless 
a new grant with extended limitation be issued ; and to my knowledge more than twenty Peers 
and Baronets have not the ghost of a right to the supporters they display. And there are a good 
many Knights Grand Cross who use supporters without having obtained the right — in other 
words, have simply invented them for themselves. 

Another point is that it is utterly illegal for heirs-apparent to Peerages, even though bearing 
courtesy titles, to assume either a coronet or supporters. 

* For a long time these Orders have been confined to Peers, and the Garter to those of the rank of Earl and upwards ; 
but formerly, when they were open to commoners, they carried the privilege of the right to obtain supporters, as did 
the Order of the Bath before it was di^^ded into classes. 



xxiv ^f^z at)U0e of Htms 

I would commend to the notice of all offenders on this point the clauses in the Patents 
confining the right to use the supporters to " those upon whom the Peerage shall descend." 

No Peeress, after a second marriage, is entitled to continue to use the coronet and supporters 
of her first husband, and in fact any woman, after a second marriage, has entirely forfeited her 
privilege of using anything Armorial pertaining to her first marriage. 

And there is another class of offenders, those who undoubtedly have the right to bear Arms 
but yet prefer to use some other coat, usually one much more illustrious. 

The Yankee" on' the subject of Coat-Armour is proverbial. Cussans tells a tale in his 
" Handbook of Heraldry " which is decidedly amusing. During the residence of our Ambassador, 
Mr. Crampton, in Washington, a carriage which he brought from England was sent to a carriage- 
builder's to be repaired. Some time afterwards, on Mr. Crampton going to the factory, he was 
surprised to see several buggies, sulkies, and wagons each bearing his Arms. In astonishment 
he turned to the attendant and, directing his notice to the carriages in question, inquired if 
they were built for him. " I reckon not, sir," was the reply ; " you see when your carriage was 
here some of our citizens admired the pattern of your Arms, and concluded to have them painted 
on their carriages too ! " But if a tale which was once told to me be correct, I think I can go 
even one better than that. 

A Yankee^or perhaps I should say an American, for that is all that can be guaranteed — 
called one day at a notfed coachbuilder's. At the time of his visit a state carriage of the Duke of 
St. Albans happened to be there for some trifling repairs, and the " stranger " admired it greatly, 
and particularly its heraldic adornments. He asked whose it was, and was told. " And is that 
his coat-of-arms ? " " Yes." He " reckoned it was mighty fine," and left. And the end of 
the story is that, until quite recently, a carriage was to be seen occasionally in New York 
with the coat, crest, coronet, supporters, and Garter of the Duke, and with the "baton sinister " 
and all. 

A coat-of-arms reached me not long ago which, from certain peculiarities, I at once recognised 
as a modern grant. Over all appeared the undoubted mark of illegitimacy. The coat was only 
granted in 1843 to someone to whom a Royal License had been issued to take the same name as 
that of my correspondent, who had been thus guilelessly labelling himself a bastard. Not the 
least relationship existed. I have yet to learn where he picked up the Arms. 

This is a good example towards my argument all along, which is to make sure you are really 
entitled to the Arms you carry. 

Perhaps some people sin through ignorance ; but I know many people are perfectly well 
aware of what they are doing, and one can but suppose they simply trust to the general ignorance 
of the subject to escape detection. But having regard to those who are sinning through lack 
of knowledge, it is a pertinent inquiry as to how they have drifted into the ranks of the offenders. 
The first people to get blamed by the outer world are, of course, the official heralds. People 
like " Guy le Vieux " {vide letters in the Globe), probably simply because their own Arms have 
failed to pass muster, go about seeking whose credulity they may devour, and loudly proclaiming 
that the King, who is above the Heralds' College, granted Arms which are not recorded there ; 
or that the heralds at their visitations omitted to record this coat or the other coat. And you 
may, as I have done, hear tales about families who have continuously since the twelfth century 
borne Arms which have never been recorded in the College of Arms. It is, of course, impossible 
to say that any hypothetical case cannot exist, but I have never known one proved ; nor can I 
come across any one having the least real knowledge of Heraldry who believed in these tales ; 
for they all, when examined, prove to be a tissue of impossibilities, improbabilities, and untruths. 
It is just possible one or two isolated cases of the kind might exist in the Channel Islands, and 
undoubtedly unregistered Arms have for a long time been borne in some cases in Scotland and 
Ireland, but the law of the land — not any law of the Offices of Arms — has distinctly declared 
these to be illegal, and that puts an end to any argument. But as to England proper, one can 
be very safe in saying that no such cases exist. One often hears the remark, " Oh, but anybody 
can have a coat-of-arms by paying for it." A more mistaken idea could not exist, as a good 
many people might find on petitioning the Earl Marshal for a grant. But, though I have heard 
this remark often, I have never once heard it come from the lips of any one who was undoubtedly 
Armigerous, either of new or old gentility. Consequently, if other people may judge from my 
experience, whenever that remark is made you can be pretty certain of- — well, the deduction is 
fairly obvious. 

A gentleman with whom I have come in contact has shown me a seal which was engraved 
for him for some very small sum. When he was quite a boy he was persuaded by some itinerant 
vendor who carried a small book of illustrations in his pocket and went the round of commercial 



Cfte ^bim of ^xm0 xxv 

offices, that that was the crest he was entitled to use. That is certainly one way of supplying 
Armorial hankerings. And jewellers and seal-engravers carefully foster the very erroneous idea 
that all people of the same name are entitled to the same Arms. Because your name be Smith 
you are not necessarily a relative of Lord Carrington, nor is every Mr. Jones a relative of the late 
Lord Ranelagh. Because your mother's name was Howard, you need not as a matter of course 
be a relative of the Duke of Norfolk, and entitled to quarter his coat with his augmentation ; 
neither is every person rejoicing in the name of Robinson at liberty to take and use Lord Rokeby's 
coat-of-arms. Arms belong to the grantee and his descendants, and such others as may be 
mentioned in the Patent, and not to everybody else of his name in the world. 

It has been the fashion to abuse the late Sir Bernard Burke's publications. They might 
have been a little more accurate certainly, but I don't think they have done quite the harm that 
some people would debit them with, and they have certainly done a great deal of good by keeping 
alive the interest in long descent, and it is still accounted " something " to have one's family 
included in the " Landed Gentr}'." 

But the real harm lies with these advertising heraldic shopkeepers. The general public think 
that a search with them is precisely the same as a search through the official records. All these 
shopkeepers do is to take down Burke's " General Armory," and, if your name be a common 
one, pick out the one amongst the different coats which is located nearest to the address you 
gave of your earliest known ancestor. One of this shopkeeping fraternity, on being applied to 
for a " correct coat," with a good deal of ingenuousness replied to his correspondent that there 
were several different coats for his name, and he could take his choice. One that was indicated 
seemed to be the oldest, and he advised that. A certain well-known character had a presentation 
made to him, and an almost equally well-known purveyor was asked to supply a coat-of-arms 
to occupy a prominent position upon the gift. I may as well say at once that the coat and crest 
he supplied did not belong to each other, and neither belonged to the gentleman in question, or 
ever had belonged to anybody of his name. But that appears to have been merely a detail. Some 
rather strong remarks I had made upon the use of the coat came to the ears of its purveyor, 
and one day a tall, middle-aged mihtary- looking personage walked into my room, and placed a 
card upon the table. It was very dirty, which may have been the reason the individual took it 
aw'ay with him again when he left. It bore the name of the noted heraldic purveyor in question ; 
and during our interview my visitor spoke vigorously with regard to what had been said. The 
Arms over which the dispute had arisen, according to the first account I heard, were erected upon 
a brass in a certain church in a small village in Derbyshire, which bore a date in the seventeenth 
century. A solicitor's letter, threatening a libel action, was the next act in the farce ; but I had 
meanwhile taken the trouble of writing to the clergyman of the church mentioned. He assured 
me there was no such brass in existence, the church mentioned having been only built about 
twenty years ago. I pointed this out to the purveyor, and he promptly gave another origin 
for the coat, which was quite as ridiculous, namely, that it had been recorded in his books for 
some considerable length of time. 

In my preface to the revised edition of " Fairbairn," I said : " There is no such thing as the 
' prescriptive right to Arms,' as to which one heraldic shopkeeper with whom I have come in 
contact talks glibly ; it exists solely in his conversation. Others of his persuasion have other 
little plausibilities equally corrupt which they bring into prominence. And it is a fairly safe 
plan to pursue to reject as bogus all Arms and crests which boast no other origin than the heraldic 
stationer, who, for a trifling fee, professes, on receipt of ' name and county,' to find Armorial 
Bearings for any applicant. During the revision of this volume, I have had a very great number 
of ' certificates ' from such places sent up to me for insertion. To my own mind that alone was 
sufficient evidence against their authenticity ; but for fear they might be right, I have had each 
one formally examined as it reached me, by the proper authorities, and in no solitary instance 
have the Arms of right pertained to those one was led to believe from the certificate were the 
possessors, and in most cases the Arms themselves, apart from the question of ownership, were 
WTong in detail or some technicality." 

And I would remind those with the sneer ready to their lips that Arms are a mere matter of 
payment of fees, that it is not so. A grant of Arms, which is a concession of grace by the 
Sovereign, is a Patent of Gentility from the CrowTi, from which is all honour, and the fees 
which have to be paid are not the price of it to you, but are the cost to the CroAvn of the 
concession which is made to you, and which cost you are required to defray. 

The Continental test of the perfection of blood — the proof of " Seize quar tiers " — has never 
been required in England, and though many glibly boast of it, but few indeed can prove it. It 
has nothing to do with the quarterings you bear, and the fact of the proof thereof by the father 



XXVI 



Cbe ^him of 0.rm0 



does not constitute the right of the son. In England men mate with whom they will, and a woman 
even socially is accepted as of her husband's rank, unless the discrepancy be too egregious and 
apparent ; and this is the English stumbling-block to proofs of " Seize quartiers." 

To establish a proof of this you must show that all your sixteen great -great -grandparents were 
legally entitled to bear Arms. In other words, you must show this right to have existed for

The word " Esquire " has been described by one writer as a description of a state {e.g., widow 
and widowhood), and not a title. But whichever it is matters little, for the right to the affix of 
Esquire is clearly defined. Neither usage and custom nor use and abuse can now alter the legal 
right to this description. There have, in times past, been other qualifications (for instance, 
anciently Esquires were created by Patent) which have become obsolete, but by the qualifications 
still existing Esquires are these — 

The sons of Peers. 

The sons of Baronets. 

The sons of Knights. 

The eldest sons of the younger sons of Peers, and their eldest sons in perpetuity. 

The eldest son of the eldest son of a Knight, and his eldest son in perpetuity. 

The Kings of Arms. 

The Heralds of Arms. 

Officers of the Army and Navy of the rank of Captain and upwards. 

Sheriffs of Counties, for Life. 

J.P.'s of Counties whilst in Commission. 

Serjeants-at-Law. 

King's Counsel. 

Serjeants-at-Arms. 

Companions of the Orders of Knighthood. 

Certain principal Officers in the King's Household. 

Deputy-Lieutenants. 

Commissioners of the Court of Bankruptcy. 

Masters of the Supreme Court. 

Those whom the King, in any Commission or Warrant, styles Esquire [and 

amongst these are Royal Academicians], and any person who, in virtue 

of his Office, takes precedence of Esquires. 

Graduates of universities, as such, are not Esquires, and barristers-at-law, as such, are not 
Esquires. 

LIVERIES 

Touching the subject of liveries, I say frankly, at once, that there is no law, heraldic or other- 
wise, to govern their choice or design. But, in the absence of any law, a very definite usage 
has sprung up, so universal and long-established in its character, and so generally recognised, 
that I may doubtless be pardoned if I draw attention to it. 



i 



Ci)e ai)u0c of atm0 xxvii 

This custom is that the colours of the Hvery shall be determined by the tinctures of the wreath 
— in other words, by the principal colour and the principal metal occurring in the coat-of-arms, 
which are knovm as the livery colours. In all Scottish Patents the phrase will be found, " and 
upon a wreath of his liveries is set for a crest," S,:c. The exceptions are so few that the rule 
may be briefly understood by saying that these must be the first metal and the first colour which 
occur in the official blazon. 

Whatever is the field of the coat-of-arms, whether it be colour or metal, determines the 
predominant colour of the livery, thus — 

Sable would give black. Gules would give red. 

Vert „ green. Or „ yellow. 

Azure „ blue. Argent „ white. 

Purpura ,, purple or mulberry colour. 

A yellow or a white livery few people in this uncertain climate, and in these days of aesthetic 
colours and half-tones, have the courage to make use of save for State or full-dress occasions, and 
for ordinary usage dark drab for the former or light drab for the latter are generally used in 
their stead. 

Scarlet is the Royal livery, and is barred to all others (with the exception of the few who 
are privileged to make use of the royal stables, and, I believe, of the Duke of Norfolk as hereditary 
Earl Marshal), consequently, if the field of your Arms be gules {i.e., scarlet), your red for livery 
purposes must be claret colour or chocolate colour. If your livery be black, you have but little 
opportunity for personal taste in the selection of tint, but with blue and green you may choose 
a shade as brilliant or as retiring as seems good to your own particular taste. 

TJie second colour governs that of the facings, and in the matter of facings yellow and white 
for gold and silver and scarlet keep their original colours. And it is in the matter of facings that 
the opportunity occurs for " taste " and ingenuity. The great majority of people for undress 
purposes make the collars and cuffs of the second tincture, or " pipe " the garments with that 
colour. The waistcoat for undress purposes is usually of a material of narrow stripes of the two 
colours. A craze lately seems to be gaining ground to make use of scarlet waistcoats which is 
decidedly an infringement of the Royal livery. If the hatband be other than of black it should 
be of the metal in the wreath. The buttons, if they are of metal, should also be governed by 
the same rule. 

Dress and State liveries, from their less frequent assumption, are not so subject to the 
vagaries of mind of the country or second-class tailor, consequently custom and usage with 
regard to them are fairly regular. The coat is usually in accordance with the field, the facings and 
ornamentation governed by the secondary colour or metal, as are the breeches and occasionally 
the stockings. The garters and shoe-buckles follow the rules I mention above for metal buttons. 
The waistcoat is sometimes one and sometimes the other, most frequently being the same as the 
coat. If a third colour appear in the Arms, this is sometimes introduced in the facings, and the 
undress waistcoat is then striped of the three ; but I think it undesirable, though it is not incorrect. 

The following examples of the liveries which should pertain to the Arms I mention will

If you have no coat-of-arms, it cannot be said to be wrong to assume any colour you may 
choose ; but it might be pointed out that the colour brown, which seems to be rather a favourite, 
is not approximated to any heraldic tincture.

With a double name or a quarterly coat you take the colours from the first quarter of your 
Arms, disregarding all others. 

If a fur occurs in one or other of the principal colour and metal of your Arms, you take the 
colour of its ground, thus — • 

Ermine is treated as white. Erminites is treated as white. 

Erminois is treated as gold. Pean and ermines is treated as black. 

If the field of your Arms is vair, your hvery colours are blue and white, and you are at 
liberty to treat whichever you prefer as the dominant colour. If your field be vaire, you take 
in the same manner the colours of which the fur is composed. 

If the field be of a metal or colour, and the principal charge be vair or vairee, the dominant 
colour of your livery is in accordance with the field, and you take either colour or metal, whichever 
you may want, from the fur. 

If through a change of name you become an accredited representative of a different family, 
and the first quarter in your coat-of-arms is altered, your livery ought certainly to change as well. 

If you have been using a livery and have no desire to alter it, and subsequently obtain a 
grant of Arms, I think it would be found, if the wish were expressed, that in designing the new 
coat the Officers of Arms would, if possible, so arrange it that the old livery continued to be correct. 

The colours of cars and carriages and of the upholstering are simply a matter of taste, and 
it is nothing more than artistic preference and a desire for uniformity — but a very general 
preference, by the way — which makes them in accordance with the liveries. In actual practice 
the metal of the harness and harness ornaments will usually follow the rules which decide the 
metal of the buttons. There is a very pretty custom in vogue at the moment of placing knots 
of ribbon or coloured leathers at the heads of horses. These should, of course, follow the two 
livery colours. 

COCKADES 

With the coming of the motor car the cockade has rather fallen into disuse, but the following 
notes from the last edition of this book seem worth reprinting. 

From liveries to cockades is no great step, and the abuse of this ornament — for such it 
assuredly is — is greater than the abuse of Arms. As to this, again, there are no laws in existence, 
but the custom which has regulated their usage is much more emphatic and pronounced than 
in the case of liveries, and the observance of which at the same time is more widely recognised 
and exacted. 

The cockade originated in the " brooch," if I may so term it, or fastening of the old three- 
cornered hats, and its use upon the hats of servants is a survival of the right to the services of a 
soldier servant. It is the last remnant of his military uniform. The black cockade of the present 
time is generally known as the " black cockade of Hanover," and its usage upon the hats of 
liveried servants dates from about the time of the Hanoverian succession. One hears about the 
white cockade of the Stuarts, but I am inchned to think it originated in contradistinction to the 
black cockade of Hanover, and I fancy has a greater existence in poetry and romantic chivalry 
than it ever had in actual life. It is doubtful if it had anything beyond an actual mihtary 
existence, and that using the term " cockade " to mean a favour, and not the exact article to 
which we now refer. 

The cockade is purely a fighting badge, so that it is essentially ridiculous for civilians or 
ladies to pretend to it. There are two shapes at present in general usage ; the most usual is 
the one surmounted with a fan-shaped ornament. This is the military cockade. The oval shape, 
without the fan, is the naval one. The right to the military cockade is universally conceded to 
all officers holding commissions in the Army, Militia, or Volunteers ; and, by virtue of their 
military capacity, to Lord-Lieutenants and Deputy-Lieutenants ; and for the same reason, to 
High Sheriffs during their year of office. The right to the naval one is conceded to officers 
holding commissions in the Navy or Ro^'al Naval Reserve. It is a moot point whether ex-officers, 
when no longer holding their commissions, are still entitled to make use of it. In my opinion, 
it should be conceded, at any rate, to those who receive permission to continue to wear their 
uniform ; but I cannot substantiate my opinion by an}'' authority, or settle the matter one way 
or the other. 

The Royal cockade is circular, and larger and rather different in the form of its construction. 
This shape, in a smaller size, is adopted by many of the royal household for their private purposes, 
and I cannot help thinking that the usage of this shape by such persons, and the usage of cockades 



Cbe ^hu0z of £lrm0 xxix 

by ambassadors, are simply a matter of privileged concession to the holder of the office for the 
being. 
The foreign cockades are of different colours. Cussans enumerates —

The Spanish 
The Netherlands 



Black and white. 
Black and yellow. 
White and blue. 
Black, yellow, and red.

And I have seen others. 

From the fact that the use of the cockade is conceded to Deputy-Lieutenants — and the list of 
Deputy-Lieutenants includes the great majority of those in a prominent social position — it 
seems to be considered by a large number of people that the placing of the cockade upon the 
hats of servants is nothing more than an indication of such social position on the part of their 
employers, and consequently the pretenders to this rank, with common consent, infringe the 
privilege. It is difficult to see what steps can be taken to check the abuse. But now that the 
dynasty has changed, and many matters are being brought anew under consideration, it would 
be most beneficial if an official notice by the Lord Chamberlain were inserted in the Gazette, 
definitely conve}dng the wishes of the Sovereign, if an expression of them could be obtained, as 
to what classes were entitled to the privilege. It really seems very probable that the cockade 
has now lapsed into meaningless ornament. 

The accepted raison d'etre of the black cockade of Hanover no longer exists. If the colour 
of the cockade were to be altered, and at the time of the official signification thereof, the 
opportunity were taken of definitely stating to whom the new cockade would appertain, attention 
would be forcibly drawn to the matter, and public opinion, having definite knowledge to go upon, 
would effectually prevent any extensive abuse of the privilege. 

And now we come to the question as to what can be done to prevent these abuses of the 
right and pri\nlege of bearing Arms, with which I have dealt in the foregoing pages. It is almost 
hopeless to advocate or expect any further convictions and fines under the old laws, which 
pro\aded such heavy penalties for the wrongful usage of Arms ; but still, overlooking these 
penalties, and without any alteration of the law, there is a great deal that might be done. 

First and foremost, if the Inland Revenue authorities were more eager and efficient in the 
discharge of their duties, and in the enforcement and collection of the annual licenses imposed by 
the law, it would make a marvellous difference. And if the payment of the required license were 
more rigorously enforced, the average tradesman's wife might think again before answering a 
newspaper advertisement and placing herself in a tradesman's hands for a guinea box of 
stationery, and perhaps a prudent husband might enforce a Httle reflection. 

And the wording upon the licenses issued by the Inland Revenue authorities requires 
considerable alteration. At present it reads —

The italics are mine, and this wording, to put it mildly, is ultra vires. I am not the first to 
point out that as it stands now it is a direct infringement of the personal prerogative of the 
Sovereign. It needs no Act of Parliam.ent to alter it. With all possible deference to the 



XXX Cfte 3t)U0e of 3rm0 

authorities at Somerset House, I would suggest the following wording as more legal and less 
open to abuse : — 

having paid the sum of one guinea, is hereby 
admitted to have fulfilled the requirements of the Inland Revenue Department, but such payment 
not to be held to have confirmed or conferred any right to the usage of Arms not sanctioned by 
the duly accredited Officers of Arms." 

The Act of Parliament creating the requirement of these licenses reads as follows : — 
" 32 & 33 Vict. : Customs and Inland Revenue Duties : Ch. 14, sec. 18. On and after the 
first day of January one thousand eight hundred and seventy, there shall be granted, charged, 
levied and paid, for the use of her Majesty, her heirs and successors in and throughout Great 
Britain, under and subject to the provisions and regulations in this Act contained, the following 
duties, that is to say : . . . For Armorial Bearings : —

any carriage ;^2 2 o 

If such Armorial Bearings shall not be so painted, marked, or affixed, 

but shall be otherwise worn or used . , . . . .110 

Ch. 14, sec. 19 (i). It shall not be necessary for any member of the Royal Family to make 
any declaration or to take out any licence under this Act, nor shall it be necessary for the sheriff 
of any county, or mayor or other officer in any corporation or royal burgh serving an annual 
office therein, to take out a licence for any servants, carriages, or horses employed or kept by 
him for the purposes of his office during his year of service, nor for any person who shall by right 
of office wear or use any of the Arms or Insignia of any member of the Royal Family, or of any 
corporation or royal burgh, to take out a licence in respect of the use of such Arms or Insignia. 

Ch. 14, sec. 19 (13). ' Armorial Bearings ' means and includes any Armorial Bearing, Crest, 
or Ensign, by whatever name the same shall be called, and whether such Armorial Bearing, 
Crest, or Ensign shall be registered in the College of Arms or not. 

Ch. 14, sec. 19 (14). Any person who shall keep any carriage, whether owned or hired by 
him, shall be deemed to wear and use any Armorial Bearings painted or marked thereon or affixed 
thereto. 

Ch. 14, sec. 19 (15). It shall not be necessary for a hcence to be taken out by any person 
dul)^ licensed by proper authority to keep or use any public stage or hackney-carriage for any 
Armorial Bearings painted or marked on such stage or hackney-carriage." 

There is some difference between the foregoing and the notice appearing upon the back of 
the return, by which you are invited by the means above mentioned to contribute to the Inland 
Revenue. It is as follows ; — 

"ARMORIAL BEARINGS. 

Definitions. 

The term ' Armorial Bearings ' means and includes any Armorial Bearing, Crest, or Ensign, 
by whatever name the same shall be called, and whether such Armorial Bearing, Crest, or Ensign 
shall be registered in the College of Arms or not. 

Any person who keeps a carriage, whether owned or hired by him, is deemed to wear and 
use any Armorial Bearings painted or marked thereon or affixed thereto. 

A licence to use Armorial Bearings on carriages includes the use of such insignia in any other 
manner. 

Note. — If any person holding a licence at the lower rate of duty shall become liable to the 
higher rate by reason of using a carriage with Armorial Bearings thereon, a proper licence must be 
taken out within 21 days. The duty on the former licence will then be repaid by the Collector of 
Inland Revenue. 

Exemptions. 

The proprietors of public stage carriages or of hackney-carriages hcensed by local authority, 
in respect of any Armorial Bearings marked thereon, or on the harness used therewith. 

The Commissioners of Inland Revenue do not require licenses to he taken out in the 

following cases : — 

1. By any shopkeeper in respect of the use of Armorial Bearings or devices, solely as trade- 
marks, and in the course of trade. 

2. By any municipal or other corporation, or any public company, in respect of the use of 



Clje 3bii0e of arms xxxi 

their corporate Armorial Bearings, or by any person using the Armorial Bearings of such a 
corporation or company by right of office. 

3. By any officer or member of a club, or society, using at the club, or on the business of the 
society, any Armorial Bearings for the use of which such club or society have taken out a licence. 

Persons Exempt From Return and Duty. 

1. Members of the Royal Family. 

2. The Sheriff of any county, or the Mayor or other officer in any corporation or royal 
borough, serving an annual office therein, in respect of any servants or carriages kept by him for 
the purposes of his office during his year of service. 

3. Persons wearing by right of office any of the Arms or Insignia of members of the Royal 
Family, or of any corporation or royal borough, in respect of the use of such Arms or Insignia." 

The difference is no doubt somewhat explained by the enclosed reply I received to certain 

inquiries upon the matter : — 

1642 E " Inland Revenue, 

1894 " Somerset House, London, W.C, 

" gtk March, 1894. 
" Sir, — In reply to your letter dated the 22nd ultimo, I am instructed by the Board of Inland Revenue to acquaint 
you that (i) section ig of the Act 32 and 33 V'^ict. c. 14 provides that it shall not be necessary for a Corporation wearing 
or using .Anns or Insignia to take out a licence. (2) The above exemption for a Corporation is construed by the Board 
as meaning that a licence need not be taken out by any pubhc company for any corporate Armorial Bearings. (3) A 
Ucence is not (according to a concession allowed by the Board) required by a shopkeeper for Armorial Bearings used in 
connection with matters relating merely to his trade, as on bill-heads, trade labels, &c., or on his shop front ; and this 
regulation applies to the use of the Royal .Arms, so far as the Revenue is concerned. But (4) the Board cannot state 
whether or not in any particular case objection arises under the Patent, Designs, and Trade-Marks Act of 1883 to the 
use of the Roval Arms. This point would be determined by the Board of Trade. 

" The Act relating to licences for Armorial Bearings is the 32 and 33 Vict. c. 14. — I am, Sir, your obedient Servant 

(Signed) " Wm. Rossetti, 

" Asst. Secretary." 

Corporations, public companies and tradesmen are every bit as capable of bearing taxation 
as those of more patrician birth ; and, moreover, it appears to me that the Inland Revenue 
authorities might just as well make up their minds not to collect the tax on wine or cigars when 
imported by a tradesman or pubhc company. If the tax were rigidly enforced in all the cases 
that the Act sanctions, the revenue from this source would be more than doubled, and tradesmen 
would be far less prone to prostitute the dignity of Arms to the catchpenny artifices of business. 
As matters stand, they have a direct suggestion and inducement for doing so. And it would 
need no Act of ParUament to construct a regulation in the Trade-Mark Registration Department 
that no coronet whatsoever, and no design which can be classed as heraldic, should in future be 
accepted for registration. It is easy to say what is " heraldic " in design : or the regulation might 
run that no design should be placed upon an escutcheon, lozenge, wreath, or chapeau, or in con- 
junction with any coronet, and that no design should consist of any object — commonly classed 
as heraldic — or any such disposition of objects, upon a circle, parallelogram, or oval, that one 
could be led to suppose the design might be considered to be a coat-of-arms. It would not need 
an Act of Parliament to introduce a poHce regulation that no vehicle should be licensed as a pubhc 
hackney-carriage until anything " heraldic " painted upon it or affixed thereto were defaced or 
obhterated. It would only need a resolution of the Common Council for it to become a sine qua 
-non that no Armorial Bearings, personal or impersoAal, should be placed upon any casket or 
other presentation article ordered by the Corporation, or upon any official invitation card or other 
official publication, until such Arms had been sanctioned by the College of Arms. 

And a great deal might be done by Town Clerks and Mayors. It is a positive disgrace that 
some towns are using Arms which are of no authority. It would be very little trouble for each 
To\\Ti Clerk or Mayor of the towns which are illegally using Arms to call the attention of the 
Corporation to the fact. I feel certain that in many towns, matters have only to be placed 
before the Corporations in the proper light, for immediate steps to be taken to rectify the present 
illegal state of affairs. If after having all the facts before them the Corporations are too 
parsimonious to move in the matter, it should certainly be made known, in order that the effort 
might subsequently be made by private individuals (as it has already been done in a good many 
cases) to rectify the apathy of the official bod3^ For surely in these large towns who are still 
defaulters there are enough public-spirited people interested in Heraldry to subscribe in small 
sums the necessary fees, even if there be no local magnate wilUng to make the town a present of 
its Arms. It would be no bad speculation for the local paper in each place to head the subscription 
list, for it would be amply repaid for its trouble by the advertisement and by the cash which 
would accrue from the sale of photographs of the Patent or accurate copies of the official Arms. 
County Councils in the same manner.

One of the most important checks is in the hands of clergymen, and is this. No brass plate 
or mural tablet or tombstone may be erected in a church or churchyard without the consent 
of the clergyman thereof for the time being, nor can any hatchment be hung up upon the walls 
of the church. I am afraid the day of hatchments has come to a sorry end, but still with these 
where they may be used, and with all intra or extra mural monuments, the clergyman can 
discourage the use of any but legal Arms. He would be wise to require the mourners to spend 
an extra half-guinea to provide a certificate from the College or Office of Arms concerned, that the 
Arms proposed to be erected were legally displayed and properly marshalled. 

Architects can, and some do, do a great deal — particularly with regard to impersonal Arms — by 
discouraging their display unless the coat-of-arms be beyond reproach ; and, where they have 
reason to doubt the accuracy or validity of personal Insignia, by taking care to avoid affording 
opportunities for the display of such. 

I doubt the feasibility or the advantage of a return to compulsory " Visitations," but with 
all possible agreement I join my advocacy to that of others who recommend the renewal of the 
Visitations in a voluntary form. Many people, on the score of indifference, will not take the 
trouble to record their pedigrees, but might respond to an invitation to do so if special facilities 
were offered. The world is growing strangely casual and indifferent of late on matters of honour. 

The House of Peers has been stated by an able writer to be as representative a body as the 
House of Commons, the difference being that the composition of the one is permanent as rep- 
resentative of a permanent class, and the other varying as representative of a body varying in 
its constitution and wishes. Consequently there is everything in favour of the continuance of 
the hitherto practised methods of the selection and creation of Peers. 

But there is much to be put forward in favour of the consideration whether services to the 
Sovereign or the community, which may happen to be only of a comparatively minor character, 
cannot adequately and acceptably be rewarded in more frequent cases by grants of Patents of 
Arms, or by grants of Augmentations. Such a revival of ancient practices would greatly add to 
the dignity of arms, and in each case can readily be made into a direct memento of whatever 
action it is desired to commemorate. And further, it would provide also for cases where services 
worthy of recognition have been rendered, where the means do not exist to satisfactorily main- 
tain the dignity of knighthood, or of an hereditary title. 

It is much to be regretted that it is not considered a necessity for each person, as he attains 
his majority, to ascertain and record what Arms, quarterings, and difference mark he should 
display. And upon his marriage, it ought to be considered as much a matter of course as 
consulting a lawyer as to his marriage settlement, that he should consult an Officer of Arms as to 
what difference his marriage makes in his achievement. 

But even if the head of every family would take the trouble to investigate the right of his 
original ancestors to the Arms they claimed, and would then prove and register his own right to 
these Arms, and place upon record what he knows, a great step would be taken towards the 
correct end. A certain responsibility attaches to the headship of a house, or even of a branch 
of one. It is a rotten argument that because posterity have done nothing for you, you are caUed 
upon to do nothing for them. As it has been truh" said : " Many things are lost to us which 
were known to our grandfathers, and our grandchildren will search in vain for things which to us 
are most familiar." 

And there is much to be done in the literary field. Learned treatises are still multiplying in 
number, which will even yet continue to discuss the ancient controversy as to whether a lion 
passant guardant must not of necessity be a leopard, which even yet take poor Sir Isaac Heard to 
task for the coat he designed for Lord Nelson. It is certainly very interesting, but the scientific 
side might well have been left until the legal was " understanded of the multitude." But a 
series of articles was published, " The Right to Bear Arms," by " X." These articles have 
dealt more exhaustively with the legal side of the question than I have done herein, and they 
have now been republished in an extended form under the above title. I would also refer to my 
own two books, " Heraldry Explained " and " A Complete Guide to Heraldry." 

Mr. Walter Rye did a great service to genealogists and antiquarians of all degrees — a service 
which I hardly fanc}^ is yet thoroughly realised — when he wrote and published his book, " Records 
and Record Searching." In it he says : — " No catalogue or index has ever been published of the 
contents of the College, nor have the Officers of Arms ever considered themselves called upon to 
issue, as they most certainly ought to do, a list of those persons who are and those persons who 
are not entitled to Armorial Bearings. Many of the earlier Visitations have been copied more or 
less accurately — rather less than more — and are to be found in the British Museum and other 
libraries." I mention it last because I consider that " Armorial Families " is the most crying 



Cl)e ^tJiise of ^rnijo; xxxui 

want that Heraldry knows. The College of Arms has not published such a book, and apparently 
has left the effort to be made by private enterprise. Had no heraldic book ever been published, 
had no list of Arms ever found its way into print, had no unauthorised " Peerage " ever been 
compiled, then it would have been well for the science of Armory. If the attempt to supersede 
their jurisdiction had been suppressed ages ago, when the College had and exercised sufficient 
power and authority to have done so, they would have remained what they are not — (not only 
the sole authority upon matters of Arms), but — and here they would have had the power — the sole 
source of heraldic information. But it is idle to talk of lost opportunities, the situation of the 
moment remains. And it is this — every reference library has a copy of Burke's " General Armory," 
from which the whole wide world helps itself to a crest or a coat-of-arms. Every day the news- 
papers and the penny post convey advertisements of those who pretend to find, for three-and- 
sixpence or less, Arms for those who don't know how to help themselves. Everybody who 
proclaims liimself to be anybody must apparently sport a coat-of-arms. So that the need has 
undoubtedly arisen for some book which shall advertise, that all who run may read, which coats- 
of-arms are lawfully and legally borne ; that shall discriminate between the sheep and the goats ; 
that shall sepai-ate legitimate Armigeri from bogus pretenders. This is the book I am endeavour- 
ing to create. 

The details of the Armorial Bearings in the present work have had my personal attention, 
and I bcheve them to be correct. For the other details I have been at the mercy of those who 
have supplied them and the sources from which they have been taken. And, unlike' the details 
of the Arms, the other facts and matters have been largely dealt with by my assistants, and I 
am not inclined to personally vouch for them to the same extent that I hold myself responsible 
as to the Arms, but I have no reason to consider that my book is less accurate than other pubUc- 
ations of a similar character. It may not be in some details so extensive, but I beheve that the 
information I do give is correct. But as by now most people must have received from six to 
eight proofs of their entries at different times, the mistakes remaining must be few in number. 
But I do not claim that my book is at present anything like complete. But it is the first and only 
attempt to draw a plain, unvarnished, and legible distinction between those Arms for which the 
authority has been legally and duly estabUshed and those for which it has not. It is the first 
book of its character which has recognised fully that the laws of Arms differ widely in England, 
Scotland, and Ireland. It is the only book that has gone to the root of the matter, and treated 
of the abuse as well as of the use of Arms. 

The difficulties under which my book has been compiled may perhaps in some measure be 
appreciated when I say that I personally have had no access to the records of the College of Arms. 
My book is in no way official, being issued under neither the sanction, the authority, nor the 
control of the College of Arms, of the Lyon Office, or of Ulster's Office. But it is for this reason in 
no worse phght than any other book. As far as I know, the " Ordinary of Scottish Arms " by 
the late Lyon King is the only book relating to Arms which has even been issued, and which 
can be considered in any way official. 

And then one passes naturally to the question of what changes in the law are desirable. 

In the first place, it should be made imperative that, before any Charter of Incorporation 
be granted to any town or company, the fees payable upon a grant of Arms should be lodged with 
an Officer of Arms. This would at once check a great abuse, for I find that, unUke the cases of 
individuals, when Arms legally exist for a Corporation there is seldom much inclination to go 
beyond or set aside what is duly authorised. 

The erection of no monument bearing anything of an Armorial character should be permitted 
without the production of a certificate from an Officer of Arms of its accuracy. 

No Arms whatsoever ought to be permitted to be erected upon any building other than a 
private dwelling-house without their validity being certified. 

It is desirable that an official Government " Inspector of Seals " be appointed under the 
direct authority and control of Garter King of Arms, Lyon King of Arms, and Ulster King of 
Arms. And it should be required that all official seals be obtained from him. And by " official " 
seals, I mean any seal whatsoever that is used for any purpose other than purely private and 
personal matters ; and I would include all Ecclesiastical and Municipal seals, and all Company 
seals, and those of the High Sheriffs. This would put an end to the present farce by which many 
bogus coats are perpetuated. Such a regulation would inffict no hardship upon anybody, and 
would not require a single person to obtain a grant of Arms. For the official Bishoprics there 
are the official coats, and a Company or Municipal seal need be engraved with nothing beyond its 
legend. If the High Sheriffs did not choose to estabhsh a right to Arms, a monogram would 
answer all their purposes. 



xxxiv Ctie ai)U0e of arni0 

The exemptions at present made from the taking out of hcences in the case of " trade 
purposes," hackney-carriages, companies, and corporations, it is desirable to aboHsh. They 
simply place a premium upon unauthorised coats. 

Until 1904 there was a regulation which required that before the Patent of creation for a jj 
Baronet could pass the Great Seal, his Arms and pedigree should have been first recorded in the 
College of Arms. This should be made to apply to all hereditary titles ; and if it were made to 
apply to the dignity of Knighthood as well, it would inflict no hard.ship, and m.ight bring a hand- 
some increase to the revenue. And Knights Grand Cross and Peers should be required to obtain | 
grants of Supporters. They nearly all assume them, and they might just as well all be required " 
to do it legally. 

It is desirable that upon proving and recording your right to a coat-of-arms, it should be 
possible to obtain damages from any unauthorised person who is making use of the same Arms. 
I am advised that as matters exist at present this could not be done, even after the coat had been 
" entered at Stationers' Hall." 

The penalty for improperly making use of the Royal Arms, besides being much more 
rigorously enforced, might, with advantage, be increased. It is doubtful to my mind if the Prince 
of Wales' badge at present is protected. If it is not, it should be definitely included. 

A penalty should be legalised and enforced upon those who make use of Municipal Arms for 
other than Municipal purposes. 

The last suggestion I will make is one for the origin of which I cannot claim the whole 
credit. The law at present requires that a licence shall be taken out annually for the use of 
Armorial Bearings, namely, of one guinea, or if used upon a carriage, of two guineas. 

The proposition in question is, that it should be. open to any one, corporations included, to 
obtain a certificate from the Officers of Arms that they were legally entitled to bear Arms. Such 
certificate might, as a help to the Revenue, be required to bear a half-crown stamp. Upon the 
production of this certificate, a remission of 25 or perhaps 50 per cent, upon the amount payable 
to be made to the applicant. And failing the production of the certificate, the licences to be 
increased to two guineas and five guineas respectively. 

Such a change would at once commend itself not only to those Armigers who would be 
empowered to take advantage of it, but to every one who has at heart in the least degree the welfare 
and respect of true Armory. A few people — e.g., of illegitimate descent — would pig-headedly 
pay the higher fee in perpetuity rather than have their claims adjudicated upon, but the great 
majority would immediately prove and establish their right or drop the use of Arms. Then there 
would be at once a practical end to the bogus display of Arms. 

Such a change is only likely to take place if it can be shown that it will increase or at least 
not diminish the revenue. It is my opinion, and also the opinion of all others whom I have con- 
sulted, that the revenue from this source would, as a result, substantially increase. In the first 
place, a large revenue would arise from the stamps upon the certificates. In the next place, 
a large number of people in undoubtedly good position are sinning through ignorance of 
the law, and making use of unauthorised Arms. They would have their attention forcibly called 
to this, and a large number of new grants would require to be issued, and the revenue from the 
stamps thereupon would be of great magnitude. It would call attention pointedly to the 
Scottish law of Arms, which requires all younger sons and cadets to matriculate their Arms, and 
of course in Lyon Office the whole of the fees accrue to the Government. There would constantly 
and continuously be required new matriculations as each younger son attained his majority 
and the fees, ;^I2 in each case, would materially lighten the woes of the Chancellor of the Exchequer 
for the time being. And this would be by creating no new law of Arms, but simply by enforcing 
laws which not only exist but are recognised and in a measure conformed to at the present day. 

And it would be a " Democratic " Budget enough, in all conscience, for it would not touch 
this latter-day fetish, the British working man. 

But to my mind, as a lover of Armory, by far the greatest argument in its favour is, that it 
would in some measure restore the ancient respect for Arms — it would in some degree renew their 
ancient lustre. 

I have little more to say ; the advantages, on more general grounds, of these remedies for 
which I have pleaded I would much rather leave in some better hands to put forward. 

If honour be at an end let its signs and tokens go with it. But Arms have even yet a lustrous 
meaning and a significance known and cherished by many, and " surely even those who affect 
the greatest contempt for Heraldry will admit that if Arms are to be borne at all, it should be 
according to the laws of Arms ; and that, if the display of them be a matter of vanity, it is a 
less creditable vanity to parade as our own those which belong of right to others."

THE ANCIENT FAMILIES OF ENGLAND 



A CRITICAL examination of the Arms of the upper classes in this country, 
shows so plainly that the great bulk of our present aristocracy are in 
the male line of comparatively modern origin that it becomes of considerable 
interest to ascertain which families still existing can rightly and properly, 
be regarded as of unquestionably ancient lineage. The list which follows 
is an attempt to collect the names of such houses. I have no doubt I am laying 
up for myself trouble untold by making a selection, but that I must risk. But I preface 
the list by the remark that I have found it impossible to include Welsh, Scottish, or 
Irish families. 

There are many Welsh families with pedigrees running back into remote antiquity 
which at first sight would appear to rank as far more ancient than any existing English 
houses. The pedigrees are accepted officially, and it should be remembered that these 
pedigrees are not what can justifiably be termed bogus pedigrees in the sense in which 
that term is applied to fraudulently faked or concocted ones. In the later generations 
which can be tested by contemporary documentary records the pedigrees will stand 
examination, but the early generations which give to them their inordinate length, and, 
if they can be accepted, place Welsh families far before Enghsh ones in antiquity, are 
of course nothing more than mere strings of names. They, however, violate probabilities 
by inclusion of far more generations than should occur in the ordinary course of a descent 
between known historical dates. A very ingenious explanation has been put forward, 
based upon the ancient Welsh Land Tenure, that these names were preserved as those 
members of the family entitled to participate in the ownership of the land, and that at 
many points the names should be read across as the names of brothers instead of father 
and son and grandson. No one suggests that the civilisation of the Welsh surpassed that 
of the Enghsh, and with all English pedigrees ceasing at or shortly before the Conquest, one 
would not expect to find Welsh pedigrees centuries older. There is this, however, to be 
said for Welsh pedigrees, that the more important ones are those of Sovereigns — petty 
though they may have been. Nevertheless one cannot but regard them, for good or ill, 
as " Welsh " pedigrees, and whilst accepting them as genuine " Welsh " pedigrees, one 
leaves them as that. 

I have excluded Scottish families because, after one has enumerated Campbell, 
Duke of Argyll, Douglas, Duke of Hamilton, Hamilton, Duke of Abercorn, Drummond, 
Earl of Perth, and the other historic houses whose names are household words, one is 
met with the problem whether or not reputed cadet families really have the blood of 
those famihes whose names and differenced versions of whose Arms they bear. Personally 
I class the average Scottish pedigree with a Welsh one, and I prefer to leave the Scottish 
Houses to some one more familiar with Scottish Genealogies who will attempt to 
differentiate between genuine and reputed cadets, 

Irish families again are a difficulty, and Celtic romance has only too often supplied 
the hiatus of fact. My list hereunder is intended to be only of families of English 
descent. 



XXXVl 



Cbe Oncient jFamilies of OBnglanD 



The oldest male pedigree of any person belonging to the United Kingdom, the finest 
and longest undoubted and unbroken lineal male descent, is that of 

HIS MAJESTY KING GEORGE V 

who is thirty-first in descent from Wittekind the Great, first Duke of Saxony, who died 
A.D. 807. That pedigree is wholly German through his father, and His Majesty's EngUsh 
descent from the Stuarts, the Tudors, the Plantagenets, and from Alfred the Great is not 
in the male line. It is because His Majesty's ancestors in the male line have always had 
territorial dignities, and have never needed a surname from a period anterior to the origin 
of hereditary surnames, that His Majesty had no surname at all until the surname of 
Windsor was adopted. 

SAXON FAMILIES 

There are certain English families which claim by tradition to be of Saxon descent. 
I am not aware that in any case it would be possible to demonstrate the fact by 
documentary evidence, but in each case no claim is put forward to Norman origin, and 
the unvaried tradition has been of a Saxon origin. Whether this be so or not, each of 
these families is of the greatest antiquity. They are : 



Ashburnham, Earl of Ashburnham. 

Carew of Carew, Bt., Fitz Gerald, Duke of 
Leinster, Fitz Maurice, Marquess of Lans- 
downe, and Gerard, Lord Gerard, all 
tracing male descent from Otho, living in 
England temp. Edward the Confessor.

Swinton of Swinton. 
Towneley of Towneley and Fulbourne. 
Trelawney, Bt. 
Wolseley of Wolseley, Bt., and Visct. Wolseley. 



NORMAN FAMILIES 

It is not easy to definitely prove that any given family "came over with the 
Conqueror," constantly though this glib claim is put forward, but the following families, 
reputedly of Norman origin, are found immediately after the Conquest established 
in this country : 



Bagot of Bagot's Bromley, Lord Bagot. 

Barttelot of Stopham, Bt. 

Bassett of Tehidy. 

Beaumont, Bt. 

Bedingfeld, Bt.

The next class of family which in these democratic days may truly be styled " ancient," 
are those famiUes who proved their right to bear Arms at the time of the Visitations. This 
will be a much more difficult list to compile, but I hope in some future edition of " Armorial 



xxxvm 



Cije Ancient jTamiliejef of OBnglanti 



Families " that it may be possible to publish such a list. I shall be pleased to hear from 
those who consider the names of their families should be included, hut in every case it is 
an absolutely essential necessity that an official certificate should be forwarded to me 
stating at what Visitation the Arms were first confirmed and that the applicant is descended 
in the male line from the person to whom the Arms were confirmed. It is useless to 

WRITE ME ON THIS POINT EXCEPT SUBJECT TO THAT UNDERSTANDING. I have UO wish to 

be discourteous, but long experience compels me to say that I much prefer to correspond 
with the male members of a family on genealogical matters. I have never yet succeeded 
in convincing a lady of anything she didn't wish to know.
